Dental instruments will be provided. You are welcome to bring your own, just make sure that everything is CLEARLY labeled with your name. Pediatric dentists – safety kits will not be provided, so you should bring your own. Hygienist – we will have 20 cavitrons available. If you would like to bring your own, clearly labeled cavitron, we will re-calibrate it for you at the conclusion of your shift.
Personal Dental Instruments: If you wish to bring your own dental stools and other equipment, you may set-up your operatory on Thursday, December 10, at the clinic site between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm. Please be sure all equipment brought to the clinic is CLEARLY labeled. The sterilization unit has procedures to separately handle your personal instruments.
If you are volunteering on both Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12, you may leave your equipment by your chair.
Clinicians should plan to bring protective eye wear, face shield and any other personal protective equipment you use in your office. Headlamps and extra batteries are also recommended to increase visibility. Ultra Light Optics is an event sponsor. They will have headlamps and loupes available for volunteers to borrow. You will need to provide your credit card number in order to borrow equipment.
A disposable gown, masks and gloves will be provided. Instruments and supplies will be also be provided but if you have favorites you may wish to bring your own instruments and supplies, just make sure they are very CLEARLY labeled. A very limited supply of curing lights will be available, so you may want to consider bringing your own (please label it). We also suggest that assistants bring a stool as CADS MOM is unable to provide these for assistants.
