DryShield All-in-one Isolation System

What Is DryShield?

 

What does it do?

DryShield performs all of the tasks of a high-suction evacuator, bite block, tongue shield and oral pathway protector in one easy-to-use device. It’s an intelligent breakthrough in isolation that brings unmatched levels of ease and comfort to doctors and patients alike.

 

What does it do for me?

DryShield helps to keep your work environment dry, clean and visible. By removing the normal barriers to getting your work done without a flurry of motion from your dental assistant, you’ll be able to work more efficiently. DryShield frees you to work without constraints, while your assistant stays steps ahead, streamlining each procedure. You’ll enjoy a more productive office environment and have even more satisfied patients. DryShield will also pay for itself patient after patient by allowing you to do two quadrant dentistry and reducing chair time.

DR. KALMANOVICH Laguna Beach, CA

“Thank you so much for bringing this wonderful product into our practice. I use it for crowns and filling procedures. I also have my hygienist using it for sealants. I’ve only used it a few times, but it looks fine after the autoclave. For now, I am placing the mouthpiece, but I am training my assistants to do so in the future. The material feels comfortable and it is very easy to install.”

DR. DOUGLAS Rocklin, CA

“I have been a supporter of isolation devices like DryShield from the beginning. Now that DryShield created a mouthpiece that can be sterilized, I use it all day to complete procedures like hygiene, composites, extractions, implant placement, and crowns. The mouthpiece is amazing; it sterilizes and keeps its crystal clear appearance. The quality and quantity of my dental services have only increased, yet my stress and frustration with isolation has vanished. It takes 4-handed dentistry to 6- or 8-handed dentistry comparatively.”

DR. MARTIK Pittsburgh, PA

“DryShield has made my life so much easier. I use it for all restorative and crown and bridge procedures. I’d estimate it saves me about 30% procedural time. I have a couple mouthpieces in the lineup for the past 2 months and have not thrown one out yet. They appear to be holding up very nicely after lots of autoclave cycles. Overall, very happy with the product and the customer service is great. I would not hesitate to recommend DryShield to my colleagues.”
