Ensure Patient and Clinician Safety with Top-Quality Products from Richmond
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of U.S. households had most likely never heard of the acronym PPE (personal protective equipment) and probably didn’t think twice about the role of face masks in preventing infection. But PPE and infection control have always been a top priority for those in the dental profession. While PPE like face masks, shields, gloves, and gowns, are of the utmost importance, what about the smaller items used in the dental operatory like sponges and cotton rolls? These products also play a role in infection control and need to be FDA registered and provided by a trusted manufacturer.
Richmond Dental & Medical ensures patient and clinician safety with their top-quality products such as SteriPocket pre-sterilized sponges, made-in-the-USA cotton rolls, and face masks. Many Richmond products come from U.S. grown cotton, purified and manufactured in North Carolina. Richmond’s 125-year commitment to quality and safety should provide peace of mind during these uncertain times.
According to Steven LeBeau, DDS, “every patient breathes biohazardous material our way, so we need protection while being comfortable.” Richmond’s Path-O-Guard Level III Earloop Face Masks ensure protection and comfort without sacrificing breathability. With a bacterial filtration efficiency of ≥98%, Path-O-Guard masks meet current ASTM-2100 standards for Level 3 surgical face masks. These made-in-the-USA, disposable face masks may be worn under a face shield or over the N95 mask for added protection against the COVID-19 virus. Path-O-Guard masks provide comfort, filtration, and excellent breathability during exams.
