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.

It's easier than one might think to maintain a well-disinfected and safe dental practice. Many available products allow dental healthcare workers nearly fool-proof options for disinfection. Of course, we assume everyone knows what to do and the proper protocols, but let's be honest, how can we simplify it for ourselves and new team members who may not be appropriately trained. In this CE webinar, we will answer some of those questions we have been asked repeatedly, but an honest, clear answer has not been given.
