|Top 5 Alternative Uses For Saliva Ejectors

|Until today, Saliva Ejectors across the Country have been viewed as hardware; tools to be used for shuffling icky saliva to the drain in an effort to make the doctor’s job easier and the patients more comfortable. And what reward do these heavy lifters get after a job well done? They’re tossed in the trash, too filthy to autoclave and too easy to replace.
Well, we at AM-Touch Dental see more than that in our hard working bendable buddies. We believe that our AM-Touch Saliva Ejectors are incredible at ejecting saliva, but they’re also capable of so much more. Below – The Top 5 Alternative Uses for Saliva Ejectors!
Who doesn’t love a coworker that constantly drums on the desk? Whether it’s tapping along with the radio, an impromptu John Bonham solo or simple inter-office revenge for breaking into their personal stash of M&Ms, some folks just can’t keep from drumming. With a gently bulbous tip, AM-Touch Saliva Ejectors make perfect mini drumsticks. Order varying tip colors or personalize with standard markers to create a custom set of sticks that would make even Carter Beauford proud.
Need to be mildly entertained for two and a half minutes? Play the world’s most well known and least challenging game; Tic-Tac-Toe! Simply use 4 Saliva Ejectors to create the board and paper clips/thumbtacks as the game pieces.
Birthday Princess Crown
We’ve featured some birthday-specific alternative uses for products before, but this one is especially for the ladies. Say you forget a coworker’s birthday. You arrive, see cake, birthday cards and heartfelt gifts waiting for that special person and the only thing in your hands is a half-eaten granola bar and your car keys. Fear not! Head to the supply closet for a few saliva ejectors, grab some tape and start construction on an elegant princess crown. Use the pliability of the Saliva Ejectors to get the perfect shape, add flair and customize fit. Ask the birthday girl to close her eyes and place the crown on her head. Tell her to open her eyes and announce “you’re the office princess today!” Then hurry back to your desk and hope she doesn’t look in the mirror until she gets home.
A Quiet Way To Interrupt
Sometimes you just need to get your colleague’s attention! But that doesn’t mean you have to be abrasive, intrusive, or even nearby! Connect two or more of our Saliva Ejectors to gently tap whoever you need without alarming them or interrupting an important call. Sure you won’t be able to use any actual words to communicate, but that’s not important. Just extend your arm and with a gentle tap of the saliva ejector on the shoulder….BAM! You’ve got the main stage. How will you use it? We recommend showing them a funny picture of your cat…again.
Street Line Dividers for Pet Turtle Races
No doubt you’ve heard of Teacup Turtle Racing, the 6th most popular sport in the Marshall Islands. Essentially, a daunting maze-like track is constructed over a two square foot area. Tiny pet turtles, dressed in a variety of bold and exciting race wear are released onto the track at the sound of a cap gun. Three action-packed days later, one turtle successfully emerges at the end of the track. Aside from the glory and respect earned from a hard-fought victory, the winning reptile also gets an entire leaf of iceberg lettuce!

|Top 5 Alternative Uses For Bibs
| Posted by AM-Touch, 4/5/2011 08:14:40 AM
AM-Touch Bibs are mighty. They protect from the evils of splatter, gunk and yuck. But while their task is noble, these courageous 2 and 3-ply bibs long for a different life; one where they are free to use their incredible features for tasks outside of the dental office.
Here are the top 5 alternative uses for AM-Touch Patient Bibs.
Water Resistant July 4th Patriot Hat
Ever have those moments where you look good, but want to look GREAT? Does it also just happen to be July 4th? What better way to join the festivities than making your own patriot newspaper hat from a bib! Make sure to fold it inside out to use the plastic liner for rain-proofing. NOTE: Due to the fact that bibs are smaller than newspaper pages, your hat may be better suited for a child. Or, slip it on and call it a nurse hat!
Here’s directions and a video on how to fold your hat: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Paper-Hat
Personal Green Screen
Any amateur sci-fi movie director will tell you that real things are hardly as exciting as made-up things. That’s why green screen, or Chroma Key technology is so awesome. Because our bibs are solid colors, they are perfect to use as backgrounds for special effects. Make your family believe you were scuba diving. Convince coworkers that you spent the weekend in Paris. Don’t just lie, lie with style!
Hands Free Advertising
Have extra tickets to a sporting event? Hitchhiking? Want to make sure passing motorists know that the world is ending? What ever your message, say it loud and clear by displaying it across your chest! Simply use a bib as intended and write a message on the front. Just make sure to write the message before you put on the bib. Because no one will understand “00:01 tA yadrutaS elaS egaraG”
Inter-office Capture the Flag
Lets just say it’s a Friday, on the eve of a holiday weekend, and the office is really slow. You could take the free time to work on special projects, deep cleaning or inventory management…that’s what we would do :). But if you’re not as committed as us, a dental office is ideal for a close quarters capture the flag battle. Use two different color bibs (we recommend Blue and Dusty Rose). Plant them at either end of the office, divide the staff and play on!
Finally, the chance to soar on the shoulders of a super-powered feline avenger. Perfectly sized for a medium to large indoor house cat, these bibs swing around to the back, adding style and apparent aerodynamic grace during flight. Not sure what else capes are supposed to do…
In a perfect world AM-Touch Bibs would be able to fulfill any of these incredible roles. But the truth is, they just work too well as bibs. They’re priced right, they over deliver on quality, and come from a great family (AM-Touch Dental Product Family). Why mess with a good thing?
