Q. Use of Gloves as personal protective equipment?

Gloves are task specific. The different types of gloves worn in the dental office are:

i) Examination gloves

ii) Over or cover gloves

iii) Utility gloves

iv) Undergloves

v) Surgical gloves

Gloves reduce hand contamination by 70-80%, prevent cross-contamination and protect patients and HCW from infection. The use of gloves does not eliminate the need for hand washing both prior to placement and following removal.
