PPE from Glidewell

To safeguard the health and safety of dentists, staff and patients, Glidewell is now offering personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitizing spray directly to clinicians. These solutions help reduce the spread of communicable diseases and equip the practitioner with the resources required for reopening the dental practice. Glidewell converted segments of our ISO-certified and FDA-regulated manufacturing facilities in Orange County, California, to the production of PPE, ensuring the quality of each device and protecting American jobs.

Glidewell Hand Sanitizer

Glidewell™ Hand Sanitizer is an isopropyl alcohol antiseptic 75% topical solution utilized to help reduce the spread of bacteria that potentially can cause disease. Intended for use by health care professionals, this solution can be used to sanitize the hands when soap and water are not readily available. This solution is made in accordance with the FDA’s temporary policy for the manufacture of hand sanitizer in response to the COVID-19 emergency.

Glidewell Face Mask

The Glidewell Face Mask is authorized by the FDA under an emergency use authorization to help prevent the spread of infection. Glidewell has leveraged injection-molding and 3D-printing technologies to fabricate the face mask, reducing the time- and tooling-associated costs of each unit. Having undergone extensive ergonomic testing for comfort and seal, Glidewell face masks are available in three sizes — extra small, small and medium/large — to ensure the appropriate tight fit. Individual face masks can be cleaned with common disinfecting solutions such as isopropyl alcohol or hydrogen peroxide in order to promote extended usage. Face masks should be cleaned or safely discarded after each use. Glidewell recommends the use of replaceable PFE 95%-compliant filter media to ensure CDC-recommended personal protection standards. The face mask does not include a filter; filters are sold separately.

Glidewell Face Mask Filter

Glidewell™ Face Mask Filters meet PFE (Particle Filtration Efficiency) testing requirements for filtration efficiency and air permeability of > 95%. These filters are designed to fit Glidewell Face Masks and are available in packs of 100. The filtration efficiency was measured using a TSI 8130 automated filter tester.
