To me, being a Pediatric Dentist is very rewarding. Most of my dental colleagues call me crazy for dealing with small mouths, unpredictable patients, and challenging parents. Yes, I totally agree with them but due to a few advances since graduating dental school in 1999, I feel that my job is easier. DryShield is one of those advances. Kids are active, especially their tongues. DryShield allows me to keep my work area dry, open, and easier to complete my work. The rigid bite block won’t allow patients to close which saves me needing to place a traditional scissor mouth prop as well with other systems. I also love that it is autoclavable. We now live in a world that promotes recycling and I feel that DryShield helps me with that. I get about 25 uses before I need to throw it away. Thanks for making this amazing product, I will continue using it in my pediatric practice.
