Dove Dental Products Key Benefits

Patient and Clinician Safety

  • Dove disposable valves prevent backflow to protect patients from other patients' bacteria.
  • Dove Aero HVE captures aerosols directly from the patient's mouth, protecting the clinician.
    • Studies conclude that HVE is effective at capturing a majority of aerosols coming from the patient's mouth.
    • Dove Aero HVE Significantly increases that aerosol capture rate.
  • Manufacturers' recommended cleaning protocol for metal evacuation valves was impetus for many government clinics to switch to Dove disposable evacuation valves. Cleaning protocol is largely ignored by private dental clinics, thus exposing their patients and dental professionals to infection risks.
  • Studies show that wiping and flushing metal evacuation valves do not meet hospital bacteria standards.

Operatory turnover more efficient, less time - no barrier protecton or wiping needed with Dove

Dove Disposable evacuation valves eliminate the O-rings that are necessary for the functionality of metal evacuation valves.

  • As metal valve O-rings age, the metal valve is susceptible to leakage from the on/off lever, tips and saliva ejectors fall out, debris/bioburden accumulates around the aging O-rings and suction power is diminished.

Consumer Safety/ Mercury Containment

  • EPA compliant Capt-all® amalgam capture tips are attached to a HVE valve that captures amalgam containing mercury directly from the patient’s mouth, thus preventing amalgam from entering the vacuum system. Capt-all® tips are only used for amalgam procedures, which is more cost effective than the alternative.  The alternative is to allow amalgams to enter the vacuum system, get caught in the chairside trap (~70%), pump filters and ultimately the amalgam separator (~28%).  The purchase of Capt-all® includes recycle containers for used tips and prepaid freight labels for the container.

All DOVE products are Made in the USA and are manufactured in an ISO 13485 facility.

Capt-all® is compliant with 40 C.F.R. § 441.30(a)(2) when used in accordance with Capt-all’s directions for use.

DOVE® Dental Products introduces single-use hybrid device with aerosol management to combat the spread of COVID-19
The new AERO HVE/SE combo reduces airborne aerosol movement by up to 95 percent

DOVE® Dental Products announces the release of the new DOVE® AERO, a single-use hybrid device designed to significantly reduce the risk of airborne aerosol movement caused by instrument use in a dental setting.

The threat from COVID-19 has prompted oral health professionals to rethink their infectious disease protocol to mitigate the spread of contagions in three areas: evacuation, backflow, and aerosol management. With the introduction of the new AERO product, DOVE Dental Products is leading the charge. To date, no device on the market addresses all three concerns without sacrificing patient comfort or altering dental practices. According to the Guidance for Dental Settings published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “…if aerosol-generating procedures are necessary for dental care, use four-handed dentistry, high evacuation suction and dental dams to minimize droplet spatter and aerosols.”

DOVE® AERO’s innovative design addresses these concerns by combining the power of high-volume ejector (HVE) suction with the safety of a one-way backflow protection, using a secured saliva ejector (SE) for patient comfort and easier access. The AERO features a patented 360 ° external aerosol chamber to effectively manage airborne particles of up to 95 percent when combined with internal fluid evacuation.

“We are extremely excited to introduce the new DOVE® AERO HVE Backflow Prevention Valve,” said Jim Langeloh, Vice President of Sales. “It’s the first valve of its kind to offer external aerosol collection, backflow protection, and HVE power while providing patients with the comfort of using a saliva ejector.”

DOVE® AERO is a simple, cost-effective solution for oral health professionals to manage the spread of COVID-19 using instruments with which they are already familiar. “It’s the valve that does not compromise comfort, performance, or dental office space,” Langeloh added.

DOVE® Dental Products is dedicated to developing and distributing innovative, cost-effective disposable oral evacuation devices that prevent backflow and eliminate cross-contamination between patients. DOVE® products are simple to install and intuitive with performance with no need for sterilization or autoclaving. All DOVE® products are Made in the USA and manufactured in ISO 13485 facilities.

COVID-19 has affected us all. Dental professionals continue to offer emergency services only. In doing so they are particularly at high risk. The CDC states that the use of disposable items to improve patient safety eliminates the risk of patient-to-patient contamination because the item is discarded and not used on another patient.

Through June 30, 2020 DOVE® Dental Products will provide 25 Free SE Plus Single-use Disposable Saliva Ejectors to any U.S. dental office requiring a disposable option. 

The New SE Plus fully eliminates the saliva ejector valve. Instead, the SE Plus valve is fully disposable. The SE Plus utilizes a leading saliva ejector and is the only fully disposable SE Valve & Saliva Ejector Combination product on the market. Each device stops backflow. Saliva ejectors are secured to the valve and do not fall out, and each device is guaranteed clean. To our industry dental professionals, thank you for your commitment and be safe.
