How to Save Money on Your Dental Practice Gloves

Posted by Melanie Predolich on

The vast majority of dentists and their auxiliary staff utilize disposable latex or nitrile gloves while working on patients, particularly with the rise in concern regarding AIDS and hepatitis B. The use of gloves is primarily for the purpose of protecting the dentists and assistants from contamination, rather than the patient.
 
The level of protection offered by sterile gloves is minimally more than that off non-sterile gloves. Sterile gloves can cost up to 10 times more than non-sterile gloves, and when you’re using a pair of gloves for up to 36 patients each day, that cost adds up exponentially. So, cut costs by opting for non-sterile disposable gloves bought in bulk.
 
Here are some of our favorite options to help you get the most bang for your buck:

As you can see, all of our recommendations are disposable nitrile gloves. Latex is notorious for causing allergic reactions in a large percentage of the public, which is why many people have converted to using nitrile instead. Nitrile is hypo-allergenic and is inherently puncture and chemical resistant, making it a smart choice for the dental office.
