Dental professionals have faced challenges in obtaining Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the pandemic. In some cases, the shortages have been alleviated, however, the perception still exists. Based on this and increasing PPE costs, dental practices may resort to purchasing these devices from unfamiliar suppliers. This has risks, to both the dental teams and patients, since alternate distributors, in some cases, may sell PPE that is not NIOSH certified or FDA cleared for use in healthcare settings. This CE webinar will discuss the agencies that test and approve PPE for use in these settings, how to access proper resources to ensure a dental practice is using approved PPE, what criteria to follow when making product selections for PPE.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, participants will be able to:
• Identify the various agencies that evaluate, certify and clear PPE and other dental devices.
• Describe what to look for in products approved for use in health care settings.
• Discuss OSHA regulations and CDC guidelines that stipulate types of PPE that are required for various dental procedures.
• Describe strategies for obtaining PPE during supply shortages, including the FDA Emergency Use Authorization process.   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
