Are Dental Assistants Supposed To Wear Gloves [POLL]

The other day my wife took my kids to the dentist for their 6 month checkup. She told me about something odd that happened. When the dental assistant was handling the dental tools and getting ready to work on the kids – she didn’t wear any gloves! Are dental assistants supposed to wear gloves? What good is it to my kids if she touches the metal tools with her bare hands and then puts the gloves on later?

I don’t know if law says they have to wear the gloves during prep or only when she is working on the patient. This book says they should wear them to protect themselves.

My wife didn’t say anything at the time…would you say anything. Or does this seem OK to you? Take the poll below and leave us a comment at the bottom of the page whether this is gross or not.
