Face Mask Technology Ltd, a UK leading manufacturer and wholesale supplier of respiratory face masks, has launched a new Dental P3 mask. Redesigned and in a new ‘pure White’ colour, the mask is the first Dental specific face mask available in the UK.
Since March 2020, Dentists have had a monumental task in ensuring the safety of their patients, and practice staff. Often resorting to using their own funds to purchase PPE, and there is little in the way of dental specific PPE, in particular respiratory masks available in the dental market.
The current Stealth P3 mask offers capsule style HEPAC® filtration that is up to 99.99% effective against airborne particles. Because of the performance, and competitive pricing, the P3 offered dentists a cost-effective AGP solution, and ensured the highest level of protection for the dentist, their team, and patients.
Initially designed and developed for industrial use, the success of the P3 was a surprise to everyone and although the first sales of face masks to dental practices started shortly after the beginning of the first lockdown, feedback from the dental community is that certified P3 face masks were starting to gain acceptance anyway, particularly for Aerosol Generating Procedures.
In a recent survey, dentists reported the Stealth P3 mask was the gold standard for their ’usage guidance’ and dentists and their staff were ‘more confident returning to work because of the protective qualities’ and Dentists felt ‘less stressed about PPE supply’.
Dentists Dharminy said: “The Stealth P3 Mask has been a lifesaver for my dental practice, we are able to safely treat our patients particularly during aerosol generating procedures. Purchasing the mask is also a very efficient, comfortable and affordable way to guarantee my patients and my safety during these unprecedented times, and the masks are very easy to clean which is extremely important.”
The new Dental P3 Mask is close-fitting and comfortable and comes in two different sizes, small to medium and medium to large; and utilises hypoallergenic materials and a non-latex seal with a pre-shaped design to fit securely on any wearer’s face. Specifically designed for the dental community to increase patient confidence, give a cleaner and more subtle dental aesthetic, an easier cleaning experience and is the natural conclusion to our ongoing research into face mask technology and aesthetics.
To further enhance safety and to remove the need to remember when you last changed filters, we have developed a further two specific offerings, 1) a new filter changing recommendation, and 2) a completely new service aimed at reducing practice workload:
1) Feedback has shown that remembering when to change filters has created extra workload and some confusion with practice staff struggling to record filter usage. Failure to remember to change could also result in overuse that could easily endanger practice staff and patients alike.
As a result, we have changed our filter change recommendation to ‘every 28 days’ as opposed to ’28 days use’.
2) We have developed a subscription service to make filter ordering more efficient and cost effective. You can purchase a subscription either with your new mask or as a separate item and is set to automatically mail your specified number of filter sets every 28 days.
The subscription service is open ended and can be cancelled at any time. Priced at only £9.50 a month, subscription offers a significant saving over one-off purchasing.
Both of the above are going live in conjunction with the new ‘Pure White’ P3 dental mask on Monday 22nd February 2021.
