"I have tried face shields from many sources in the attempt to find the best PPEs for our reopening. To my dismay, most face shields either interfere with my precision dentistry or cause too much strain on my head until I tried the Keating face shields. The Keating face shield is 3D printed that provides comfort, safety, and clarity. Its light weight affords all day wear without discomfort. The replaceable plastic insert is super clear, and easy to clean and disinfect for multiple uses. Two layered head bands allow for eyeglasses use without fogging. I greatly appreciate Keating Lab’s effort in providing much needed PPEs for its dentist customers."John Shi DDS
