Idea Exchange: Gloves let you get a clean grip


Keep things clean when peforming dental prophys with this reader tip.

When performing a dental prophylaxis, my hands get messy and no doubt covered in bacteria, and then I have to pick up my pen to note results in the patient's chart. So now I put my pen through the finger of a rubber glove and discard the glove when I'm finished. My pen stays clean, and I don't pass along any bacteria.
