ACPEF Chair Uses 3D Printers for PPE


ACPEF Chair Dr. Karen Bruggers and her colleagues at the LSU School of Dentistry were recently featured in this news story by 4WWL, a CBS affiliate in Louisiana, for their work to create PPE equipment for frontline health workers.

They're utilizing 3D printers to create reusable N95 masks from a flexible plastic that can be cleaned, and pairing them with an N99 filter that can be replaced.

“We started talking about how we can help get the PPEs we need,” said Dr. Burggers. Watch the full story here.

Bravo to Dr. Bruggers and all dental professionals helping where they can!
