Next month is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a month which helps promote general knowledge and education about the affliction, as well as drive the access of treatment and recovery services. This includes things like teaching women how to check for breast abnormalities that could be a potential sign of cancer, and encouraging discussion about different cancer types and the struggle faced by the patients and their loved ones.
Breast cancer, like all cancers, requires a fight for understanding, a cure, and life. There are many ways to unite with cancer patients and survivors to show your support for the on-going fight. One way is by donning the pink ribbon which has become a well-known symbol of breast cancer awareness. A pink ribbon shows that no one is alone in this fight and that there is hope for a new day in which a cure can be found.
Start off with a pink ribbon scrub top, celebrating the strength of all pink warriors. There are many great Tafford choices including the glittery Peaches I’m Going Pink Anna top, featuring hearts, words of encouragement, and of course, ribbons! This comfortable scrub top is not only cute and heartfelt, but soft, durable, and built for comfort (with two patch pockets and side slits). Grab a more casual tee like the HeartSoul Girls Love Pink V-Neck for a change of pace. A pink ribbon and heart are beautifully embroidered on black textured fabric that is highly breathable. It also compliments the waistline with well-placed darts and a low hemline.
The HeartSoul Charmed Pink with a Purpose Scrub Pant is a must to accompany the two tops! The low-rise, straight-leg fit is built with an elastic waist with drawstring to ensure the perfect fit for movement throughout your day. And beneath one of the two large cargo pockets rests a breast cancer awareness ribbon with little gold heart accents to show your love!
To complete the look, throw on some Nurse Mates Hope for the Cure socks and even these darling color-coordinated Alegria Cindi Pink Ribbon Shoes. Or accessorize with a pink ribbon Prestige Deluxe watch, lanyard, or Rhinestone ID Badge Reel.
Breast cancer patients and survivors go through a struggle that most of us will never know; we can give them our support throughout the year (and especially in the month of October) by wearing the pink ribbon. Whether on socks, a scrub top, lanyard, or anything else, the pink ribbon represents your support and the hope for a day when cancer is no more. Visit Tafford online to find more great pink ribbon scrubs and accessories.

Koi Scrubs debuted a new color this season – a beautiful deep emerald. Is green your favorite color? Do you need more color in your work wardrobe? We’ve got you covered with our Koi #TaffordStyle. This rich color is a stand-out Koi choice, guaranteeing long-lasting individuality and comfort. We suggest pairing the cute Lindsey Scrub Pant in emerald with a patterned top such as the Sound Waves Kathryn Print which has an emerald edge. The pant is not only modern and trendy but highly functional with an easy-fit drawstring waist and six pockets for on-the-go storage. A printed top maintains femininity and fun without being too busy, because the outfit is tied together with the solid emerald pant. Finally, bring out the white accent from the scrub top with a sharp white watch or go a little crazy with a glittery green fashion badge reel.

Puppies, kittens, hedgehogs – you love ‘em all! Your compassion toward everything furry and feathered and scaly led you to the veterinary profession. Our furry friends depend on your knowledge and day-to-day care, and that means you deserve the best in comfortable wear – especially for long days at work. Tafford has a great selection of scrubs and accessories specifically for vets and vet assistants.
Our veterinary collection begins with some fun prints that show off your love of animals and your fun-loving personality! For instance, the WonderWink Four Stretch Wuff-Waggin’ Sporty V-Neck features cartoon dogs and cats in whimsical pinks and greens on a blue background, with blue paw prints here and there. Because, let’s face it, you can’t get enough paws! The great thing about this cute top is that it’s high performance and low maintenance. It’ll move with you all day long and is easy to throw in the wash to get rid of all of that cat and dog hair!
The Tafford Cat Fancy 2-Pocket Scrub Top features frolicking felines in grey tones with a small pop of red for the more subdued outfit. The generous fit and soft material combine for optimal functionality, not to mention the two front pockets for all of your necessary gear, including treats for your patients!
For some variety, add in a print top that shows wild animals like the Dickies Hoo Me? V-Neck, which features owls or the White Cross Bellephant Cross-Over V-Neck, which features elephants. The Dickies brushed cotton fabric is both soft and breathable. Or, if you prefer, the White Cross top is created from 100% cotton. Either would look great with any solid color scrub bottoms.
Tafford also has a wide selection of accessories and footwear appropriate for your wild side. Check out the ID badge reel with the message that you’re a “FRIEND” to animals everywhere on it! From soft ankle socks with colorful paw prints to a veterinary medicine pin, you can’t beat the Tafford pricing and variety.
Scrubs can wear out quickly, especially when your patients are furry and clawed. There’s no doubt that veterinary scrubs get thoroughly worn. So when you’re ready for a new top, pants, or a brand new wardrobe, shop Tafford’s Veterinary Collection online for the best prices on long-lasting scrub options!

Going into the medical industry, you knew it would be a challenge full of long, exhausting days on your feet and early mornings in desperate need of coffee. But you may never have guessed the extent to which you would choose sleep over things like planning an outfit and accessorizing. You may have even fallen back a few times on pulling the first outfit you see from the closet. If your top didn’t match the pants or your shoes, it didn’t matter because you had a double shift. The bright purple and green may have worked for you in your first year of med school, but you want to present yourself with the utmost professionalism. To save that extra half hour of sleep and look great, trust Orange Standard Scrubs.
Orange Standard offers colorful scrub sets that come with four unique pieces – three tops and a pair of scrub pants – all of which coordinate perfectly without any morning fuss! For example, the fierce Orange Standard Fuchsia Scrub Kit comes with a fuchsia Del Mar top, a black Hermosa top, a black Miami tee, and the fuchsia Laguna scrub pant. The sharp Orange Standard Black Scrub Kit similarly comes with a black Del Mar top, a hot magenta Hermosa top, a fuchsia Miami tee, and a black Laguna scrub pant.

Decision after difficult decision – your day is plum full of them, But Orange Standard Scrub Sets make it just a little bit simpler. Each Orange Standard Scrub Kit comes with enough pieces to build up to 12 different outfits, and each outfit is just as stunning as the last.

Are you ready to simplify and beautify your work wardrobe? Morning prep will be a thing of the past when you try the Orange Standard Scrub kits, available through Tafford. And while you’re at it, add a few wild print tops to spice up the solid colors!

As a dentist, you know the importance of maintaining a healthy mouth and teeth. It’s an important and necessary part of the job to expertly educate the general public about maintaining good oral hygiene habits. And that’s why you should have the best scrubs and accessories to help you in your day to day work.
Starting when you wake up in the morning and get ready for the day, you should be able to dress in attire that is both functional and incredibly comfortable. Scrubs bought through Tafford won’t let you down!
A standard wardrobe might include a WonderWinks Mock Wrap Scrub Top, which comes in 12 solid colors. Pair it with the WonderWinks Flare Leg Scrub Pant, equipped with a drawstring waist. Both pieces are constructed with Active Twill fabric for durability and stretch, which offers comfort throughout even the longest days. In addition to your pant size (all of which have a built in higher back rise for full coverage when bending), you also select an inseam length for exceptional fit.
Mix things up with a colorful print top or jacket. One of our dentistry-themed favorites is the Cherokee Bee Kind to Your Teeth Mock Wrap Scrub Top. The cartoon imagery is great for a family practice, relaying your message in a fun print that will bring a smile to your patient’s face.
Is it a bit chilly in your office? Consider adding a jacket to your scrub wardrobe. The Big Smile White Swan Warm-Up Jacket offers colorfast, preshrunk fabric that withstands high performance. The snap closures and cuffs keep in the warmth while the three pockets keep your most-needed items with you at all times. And did we mention how incredibly soft it is?
Whether you are a dental assistant or taking classes to become a hygienist, you need the proper wardrobe and accessories to feel confident and comfortable all day long. Shop Tafford for the best in dental wear that will inspire smiles all around!

Well it’s official. Summer is here and the temperatures can prove it. If you have to endure the dog days of summer, they might as well be cute, right. Which is why today’s #taffordstyle is inspired by this adorable top from our Tafford Prints collection. We paired it with our oh-so-comfy Tafford Stretch flare leg cargo pocket scrub pants. Then we added in some paw-sitively perfect accessories. Why did we include Med Sleeves in the middle of the summer, you may ask? Because no matter what the temperature is like outside, there’s always that one floor/office/wing where you work that might as well be at the North Pole. With these Med Sleeves you can regulate the temperature without having to change clothes.

Watching silly characters and cartoon mayhem is a treasured part of childhood (and adulthood for some of us). There’s nothing wrong with showing your childlike personality in your hospital or clinic. In fact, most medical facilities could always use a little more laughter! This is especially true if you work in pediatric care or a family practice. Wearing bright characters on your scrubs helps make you more approachable to younger children. It may start a conversation that helps them be more at ease and relaxed in an otherwise tense situation.
So who’s your favorite toon? Tafford can provide you with a scrub top of classic or newer characters. If you’re a fan of Disney, take a look at this adorable Minnie Mouse Mock Wrap Top by Cherokee. It has a feminine hot pink side bow that cinches below the bustline, separating the black and white character mosaic above from a black and white polka dot print below.
A more recent Disney favorite, the Forever Sisters V-Neck Print Top, features Elsa and Anna from Frozen. It’s a little less traditional for a nursing top, focusing on comfort with soft knit side panels and sleeves. The v-neck has black piping for additional style, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t functional as well! This top comes with pockets specifically designed for scissors and a cell phone.
Not a Disney fan? There are plenty of toons to choose from in the Tooniforms collection! Hello Kitty has over five scrub top designs in various colors and styles. Even the Cookie Monster, from Sesame Street, makes an appearance in the Nom Nom V-Neck Top. Eeyore and Betty Boop are also customer favorites!
Tooniforms even includes a few movie character icons such as R2D2. The R2 to the Rescue V-Neck Print is a standout with its chic gray tone design. R2D2 embodies bravery and adventure, two aspects of every nurse’s day. For the guys, the Stormtrooper Scrub Top might be a great alternative. Use the “Force,” to make another patient’s day that much better!
Tafford is dedicated to providing brand options, including the colorful and adventurous Tooniforms collection. Brighten up the pediatric ward or simply show off your silly personality with any one of these unique, comfortable, and affordable scrub tops!

Little by little, the chill of winter has melted away, and flowers have begun to bloom in the warmth of the summer sun. Soon enough, we’ll be in the midst of summer and attempting to stay cool in the shade of big trees and tall buildings. It’s important to be able to stay just as cool and comfortable at work, whether you just started as a dental assistant or have been a nurse for the past 15 years. But staying cool isn’t enough; you also want (and deserve) to look and feel spectacular! Dressing in the colors and prints of summer brings a little of that summertime fun into your workplace and day-to-day activities.
There are several appealing summer scrub designs available through Tafford. For instance, if you’re feeling a bit more patriotic during this time of year, you can celebrate your love for the United States through your medical scrubs. An American flag print like the Peaches Life And Liberty Anna Print Scrub Top is a classic. It’s a comfortable V-neck design with two front pockets and side hem vents. Another option is the White Cross Patriot Peace Shirred V-Neck Scrub Top, which adds a more subtle flair to your wardrobe. It maintains the patriotic red, white, and blue colors in a unique pattern with flowers and peace symbols.
You can also show your summer spirit with some of our favorite camo scrub tops! Whether you enjoy bright colors that reflect the season, like in the Tafford Royal Purple Camo 2-Pocket Scrub Top, or something a little more traditional, such as the Tafford Flannel Green Camo Unisex Chest Pocket Scrub, you’ll be delighted with the flattering fit and quality feel.
All of these selections are short-sleeved to keep the wearer cool in the summer months. They each have one or two front pockets for convenient storage. You might also consider a scrub top based on side ventilation or high-performance fabric that will withstand the wear of the workplace, even in the summer heat. The Fundamentals Blue Bubble Overlap V-Neck has these features in a sporty print. Plus, it is made with soft, soil-release, shrinkage-controlled fabric for easy cleaning!
If you’re looking for new summer scrubs in great patterns and colors, look no further! By hunting around on the Tafford site, you can find a wide selection of items and styles to suit your needs. Plus, there are always promotions and deals to help make your choices even easier!
