In the dental practice, personal protective equipment and clothing—such as face masks, eyewear, gowns, and jackets—are essential for not only preventing contamination of street clothing, but most importantly for protecting the skin against exposure to blood and bodily fluids. Personal protective equipment creates a barrier between dental professionals’ skin and the mucous membranes of their eyes, nose, and mouth that effectively limits exposure to the pathogens and potential diseases that they encounter every day. Even though the use of dental dams and high-velocity air evacuation can minimize droplets, spatter, and aerosols, dental professionals must still wear personal protective equipment as a barrier. Gowns, lab coats, and/or jackets are also required during procedures when there is the possibility for splatter and spray of blood, saliva, and other potentially infectious fluids and material
Additionally, protective eyewear with solid side shields or a face shield should be worn during procedures that produce splashes or sprays of blood or bodily fluids in order to protect the mucous membranes of dental professionals’ eyes from contacting microorganisms. Patients can also benefit from protective eyewear, which can shield their eyes from the spatter created during various dental procedures.
