The PatientsShield™ by MB Dental Solutions is designed to trap and remove aerosols generated during dental procedures. It consists of a clear, square shield positioned above the patient’s head by a flexible arm. A disposable plastic curtain is attached to the shield. The patient is then instructed to hold a suction cone beneath the drape to help catch aerosols.
- The arm stays exactly where I put it; I only have to bend it once and don’t have to readjust it. It was also quick to set up.
- The shield gave me a very large viewing area and didn’t interfere with my vision.
- It took some practice to get my hands underneath the drape comfortably.
