BUFFALO, N.Y. – A team of University at Buffalo (UB)  dental students are using 3D printers to supply UB and Western New York dentists with much-needed protective equipment as local practices return to providing oral healthcare, according to UB News.

The students, working under the guidance of Praveen Arany, PhD, DDS, assistant professor of oral biology in the UB School of Dental Medicine, are creating free face shields and comfort bands – a strip of material worn with masks to relieve pain and stress on ears. The reusable face shields are designed to accommodate dental loupes – magnifying glasses that dentists wear while examining patients’ mouths.
