CAO Group Announces PPE Product Line Aegis PPE product line available now for Dental Offices

 


The day that seemed like it would never get here has finally arrived.  Most dental offices will re-open on May 18th… at least here in the Midwest.  I know that Utah has been back to work for at least a couple of weeks while other states, like New Jersey, are still under quarantine guidelines.

However, whether you are ready to open or at starting to gear up, things in the dental industry have changed… drastically.  Offices across the country and now working hard to find the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to keep staff and patients safe from the continued threat of Covid-19.

This is a strange time in the profession.  As the supply chain struggles with shortages and counterfeits of trusted products, suddenly every office is ordering the same product as every other office and the supply chain is groaning under the stress.  Dentists need *reliable* PPE and it seems that even things like face shields are shoddily made and in short supply.  Wouldn’t it be great if a *trusted* name in dentistry could help with the supply problem?

Well help is here.  CAO Group, a company that has been making dental products for years has now announced the Aegis PPE line.  This is a new venture for CAO Group, but one I commend them for.  They’ve made a lot of great dental products over the years and when they saw the problems with PPE that dentists were battling, they were quick to jump in and help.  Here is the info on this new company:

The CAO Group, Inc. (CAO) announces both the launch and availability of their AegisTM brand Personal

pandemic. Our recommendations for additional procedures for protecting dental staff are as follows: 1. Check
patient temperature as part of check in; 2. Use coverall suit, goggles, KN95 or surgical masks, and face shield to
