Weekend Dental Assistant School
is a proud supporter of the
Dental Assistant Face Masks
Hands-on Dental Assistant Training School
Masks are needed in dentistry to cover both the nose and mouth of the Dental Assistant. The two most common types are the dome shaped and the flat types. It is the preference of the Dental Assistant to pick the mask that is most comfortable to wear and also protective. It is important for the Dental Assistant to select the mask that fits your face well.
The mask is put on before gloving, and protects the Dental Assistant from inhaling infectious organisms spread by the aerosol spray of either the dental handpiece or the air-water syringe. It also protects against sudden and unexpected splashes. It is worn whenever splash or spatter is likely. Masks are changed between patients or even if it becomes wet during a procedure. The dome shape molds very effectively to the face and creates an air space between the Dental Assistant’s face and the mask. The flat masks can also be shaped over the nose and the loops are placed around the ears. Masks are a necessary protective barrier for the Dental Assistant during dental treatment.
