Dental podcast: Welcome to DentalTalk. I'm Dr. Phil Klein. Dental professionals have faced challenges in obtaining PPE during the pandemic. In some cases, due to perceived shortages and increasing PPE costs, dental practices resorting to unfamiliar suppliers may buy PPE that is not NIOSH certified or FDA cleared for use in healthcare settings, putting both the dental teams and patients at risk. Today we'll be discussing 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, and what criteria to follow when making product selections for PPE.
