Path-O-Guard™ Earloop Face Masks

Richmond Dental and Medical

Consultants’ Comments

  • “The best face masks I have tried in a long time.”
  • “I especially liked the anti-fog feature and the confidence of protection with a Level 3 mask.”
  • “There was no fogging and they felt extremely soft on the inside.”
  • “Thicker than lower level face masks, but they didn’t feel confining and I could breathe well.”
  • “A very comfortable mask.”
  • “Minimal ‘fuzz’ after use. There was no residue from the mask material adhering to my lip.”
  • “My assistant noticed a big difference with fog control compared to our usual face masks.”
  • “For an earloop face mask, the breathability was very good.”
  • “I would like to see some padding around the nose.”
  • “I would like to see an adjustable chin band included in the face mask.”

Clinical Tips

  • Take the time to adapt the anti-fog strip so that it can function ‘seemlessly.’
  • Cut the whole top off the box of masks to make it easier to get the masks out.
