With dental professionals back at work in their practices, they’re realizing the importance of keeping as many tools as possible hands-free. Chris Gibbs, CEO of Florida Probe, explains the company, and how it’s helping dental professionals meet this hands-free goal, particularly in the area of periodontal charting. He explains that the learning curve for most products is not steep, and that they work well with existing equipment.

Gina DuQuesnay, RDH, a trainer at Florida Probe, answers Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz’s question about whether the Florida Probe wireless headsets can be heard through all of the added personal protective equipment. She said that they can because it is a very sensitive microphone. She then demonstrates the use of one.
