Show Us Your PPE
With dental offices now providing elective treatment, dental hygienists are taking necessary steps to keep their patients and themselves safe by donning more extensive personal protective equipment (PPE). Dimensions Brand Ambassadors show how they are rocking those face shields, facemasks, scrubs, and hair covers!
