The Story

Creator & Entrepreneur

Dr. Michael S. Joyner, a Hand and Microsurgeon, is the creator and founder of the Touchless Flatware Patented Designs. As a surgeon and health care professional, Dr. Joyner understands the importance of germ prevention. Whether in the operating room, doctor's office, hospital cafeteria, or sitting at a restaurant tabletop, germ prevention is important. Touchless Flatware is designed in order to help avoid the germs on tabletops and kitchen counters.

While dining in a restaurant, like many restaurant patrons, "Doc J" wanted to place his flatware on the restaurant tabletop in order to avoid the germs that he knew were on the table. However, there was no napkin, dish or place setting available to set his flatware. He suddenly envisioned the new unique germ resistant Touchless Flatware patented design. This new Touchless modern American design is unique in that when upright the mouthpiece end avoids touching the table.

Touchless Flatware and the Touchless Philosophy combine royalty, science, and art with simplicity. Spread the word. "Go Touchless ... Touchless is the new way to dine!"
