The New World of Dentistry – TIPS July/August 2020

Color Method: The Key to Organization – Pages 12-15

Greetings and welcome back to your practice,

The whole world has changed in the last few months, and nowhere has that been felt more than in the dental practice. Infection control and prevention has been an important focus for many years, but now it is of paramount importance as we fight to suppress the spread of a nasty virus. Providing adequate protection for patients, staff, and yourself is requiring a whole new set of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), like respirator masks, face shields, disposable isolation gowns, and more. These have been around for a long time, but haven’t been popular in dentistry – until now!

The urgent need for these PPE items, coupled with a limited supply due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, has created unique challenges for dentists all over the world, as well as for Burkhart as your supplier. Unfortunately, some shady characters have seen this as an opportunity to make a quick buck by selling counterfeit goods and/or legitimate goods of extremely poor quality, that do not perform as claimed and at highly inflated prices. At Burkhart, we believe our role is to assure you get products you can count on to perform as advertised, and make them available at reasonable prices. Sorting out the legitimate, high-quality, properly priced products from all the rest has slowed our ability to get you products worthy of your trust, but it has not stopped us. We are committed to being your source for high-quality PPE products that deliver the protection they claim, and we won’t reward those who would try to make unreasonable profits during these trying times.

Your Burkhart Account Manager has tremendous insights and experience that can help you navigate around the challenges that currently exist, to help you adapt your practice to the New World of Dentistry. Reach out today and let us know how we can help. We’ve included many insights we hope will help you re-open your office smoothly and safely in this issue of TIPS. Please see our Pandemic Recovery Guide at for more helpful ideas and best practices.
