Date Display in SQL Server 2008

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Although my regional setting on my SQL Server are set to a customized date format of mm/dd/yyyy when I open a table it displays date yyyy-mm-dd and when my application retrieves information from the table that is the format it comes across in (yyyy-mm-dd).  How can it get it back to displaying as mm/dd/yyyy so I don't have for format every call to a saved date field.
