Jenna Pascoli stands in a small, glass-paneled room inside the The Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine School of Dental Medicine clinic in Bradenton and  pulls on a blue, paper medical gown over her scrubs.  

She slides on eye goggles and a head lamp, then snaps blue, latex gloves onto both hands. One breaks. She grabs another.  She sits next to her patient and checks her blood pressure.
