OSHA and CDC regulations make it clear that dentists are required to provide personal protective equipment to its employees at no cost to them. Items such as gloves, surgical masks, protective clothing and eyewear are all used to reduce the rash of exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
In dental offices there are many opportunities for employees to be exposed to bloodborne pathogens. Dental tools and instruments such as handpieces, ultrasonic scalers and air water syringes create visible spray that mainly consists of water, saliva, blood, and other microorganisms. Although this spatter only reaches short distances, they travel far enough to land on nearby items which can include the patient and the employee.
Procedures like this show the importance of using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the office; for the prevention of cross-contamination and for the protection of your employees. The excellent quality of the personal protective products that we carry is a feature that we're proud of. The quality of your supplies has a major link with the quality of infection control that your office maintains. That's why Discount Disposables offers a variety of carefully selected PPE to ensure the safety of you and your employees.
Disposable gowns, lab jackets and lab coats offer the same protection as reusable gowns but with the added benefit of not needing to launder. There are different kinds of protective clothing that can be worn to prevent the spread of potentially infectious materials. When protective clothing is worn the sleeves should be long enough to protect the entire arm and should be disposed of regularly or when visibly soiled. Discount Disposables offers a selected variety of gowns, coats and jackets to meet your needs.
