Safety measures for your dentist

1 Hand wash: Hand-wash with anti-bacterial solutions is a must for a dentist as it controls the risk of transmitting micro-organisms from patient to patient.

2 Disposable gear: Make sure your dentist uses disposable surgical masks, covering both the nose and mouth as there is a possibility of splashes of blood or body fluids.

3 Use gloves: Usage of gloves prevents contamination of hands when touching blood and saliva.
