The TapKin A Bib Clip Free Patient Cover

As dental hygienists one of our biggest rolls is that of the infection control guru in the office. I would dare say that we are the most knowledgeable on this topic in the office. Being a dental assistant prior to becoming a dental hygienist, I can say that as dental assistant I lacked the knowledge of the importance of proper infection control. In dentistry we are always searching for ways to reduce cross contamination and at the same time increase efficiency. Check out our latest video below and learn all about the TapKin, a bib clip free patient cover, that allows you to #ditchthebibclip and reduce cross contamination.

We are giving away a box of TapKins on our Instagram @hygieneedge! Head over there to enter to win!

If you just want it now TapKin is offering a 5% off discount to all of our viewers, enter “EDGE” at checkout on the TapKin website. The discount code will be active until August 1st, 2019.

Holiday Dental Gift Ideas

November is already half way over. Can you believe it? Now is the time to start thinking all things Holiday, especially gifts for your dentist, office manager, dental assistant, or even your dental hygiene school bestie. 

We've searched all over for some of the most unique dental gifts for any dental enthusiast. 

Dental Tie Clip

If you dentist or office manager wears a tie regularly, this is the perfect dental accessory.


Tooth Pin

Enamel pins are a perfect way to jazz up a white lab coat. Plus, they can be wiped down at the end of a long SRP day.


Tooth Blanket

If your dentist is a big movie or baseball fan, wrap this gift with a Redbox gift certificate and some movie treats, or baseball tickets to a local team.


Tooth Bag

Fill this bag with their favorite treats, or wrap it with a gift certificate to their favorite store or to your mall.


Tooth Magnets

So cute tooth magnets (or could also be pins) from Lilac Paper Company. This is a perfect stocking stuffer if you have a dental professional in your family.



Why not get this dental game for office team building? Based of Monopoly, this game of full of dental humor, plus the proceeds help support free dental clinics.

Hopefully this list of dental gifts can help alleviate some holiday shopping stress as December gets closer! We are always looking for new gift ideas for the dental people in our lives! What are your dental gift ideas this year? Let us know!
