Infection Prevention & Control | Dental Settings

To prevent the spread of disease caused by blood borne pathogens, dental offices follow Infection Control precautions recommended by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the quest for health safety, dental facilities purchase a variety of barrier Dirty hands cross contaminate germsrelated products and specific cleaners that protect patients and provider from cross contamination and the spread of infection. Also popular are single-use dental items that replace reusable dental tools. Using disposable items within dental settings improves patient safety by eliminating the risk of patient-to-patient contamination because the item is discarded after use and not used on another patient.

+ Surface Decontamination Supplies

Germicidal Disinfectants

The necessary first step of any disinfection procedure is cleaning. Scrubbing with surfactants removes substantial numbers of microorganisms but if a surface is not cleaned first, disinfection can be compromised. Disposable disinfectant wipes, cloths, or towelettes are effective for cleaning and disinfecting environmental surfaces in dental settings. Any disinfectant used in a dental setting should be registered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and be approved for use in health care settings (i.e., hospital grade). Popular is a line of ready-to-use pre-saturated hospital-level disinfecting wipes such as CaviWipes, Sani-Cloth® and Discide® Ultra. Convenient and affordable, germicidal wipes are an effective tool in decontaminating hard non-porous surfaces in the exam rooms.

Disposable Surface Barriers

When a surface cannot be cleaned adequately, it should be protected with a disposable barrier. Disposable Surface Barriers are inexpensive, quick and effective. A full-line of adhesive barrier sheets and plastic drape covers protect dental chairs, dental stools, dental head rests, dental light handles, x-rays, bracket trays, computer mouse and keyboards and much more from germs and damaging effects of chemicals, dust and dirt. MDS has a size and style barrier cover for virtually any item!  

+ Sterilization Supplies

Non-disposable items like the dental tools are cleaned and sterilized between patients. Sterilization kills all microorganisms, including substantial numbers of resistant bacterial spores, by heat (steam autoclave, dry heat, and unsaturated chemical vapor) or by liquid chemical sterilants such as Wavicide-01.Instrument reprocessing requires a series of steps to assure that contaminated patient-care items (dental instruments, devices, and equipment) are safe for reuse. There are a variety of packaging materials available for individual surgical instruments but the choice of type and size will depend on the item to be packaged.

Autoclave Pouches

Peel-apart sealing sterilization pouches with a see-through front and medical grade paper backing are often used for single instruments or small loads. Built-in indicators monitor the sterilization process with Steam, Vapor or EO gas and are available in the following popular sizes:

MDS Economy Sterilization Pouches 3-1/2" x 6-1/2"

MDS Economy Sterilization Pouches 3-1/2" x 10"

MDS Economy Sterilization Pouches 5-1/4" x 11"

MDS sells an affordable line of non-woven sterile wrap for Steam and Ethylene Oxide (EO) gas in the following sizes:

Dynarex® CSR Wrap 15" x 15"

Dynarex® CSR Wrap 30" x 30"

+ Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Supplies

Infection control precautions also require all dental staff involved in patient care to use appropriate PPE. PPE are special coverings designed to protect dental health care personnel (DHCP) from exposure to or contact with infectious agents and can also prevent microorganisms from spreading from DHCP to patients. These include single-use nitrile exam gloves, face masks, protective eyewear, face shields, and protective clothing (e.g., disposable gown, jacket, lab coat). After each patient, disposable wear such as gloves and masks are disposed of. Before seeing the next patient, the members of the treatment team wash their hands and put on a new pair of gloves. MDS sells a full line of comfortable protective apparel available with the newest features.

+ Hand Hygiene Supplies

Hand hygiene is a way of cleaning one's hands that substantially reduces potential pathogens (harmful microorganisms) on the hands. Hand hygiene is considered a primary measure for reducing the risk of transmitting infection among patients and health care personnel. Hand hygiene procedures include the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers (containing 60%-95% alcohol) and hand washing with healthcare specific plain or antimicrobial soap and water. New advances in technology allow providers to select high efficacy moisturizing sanitizers and hand washes designed for professionals who clean their hands multiple times every day! Also available is a alcohol-free foam sanitizer that provides 24 hour protection with a single dose.

+ Single-Use Dental Tools

Studies show that the internal portions of hand pieces and hand piece motors can become contaminated and that it is possible for retained patient material to be released into the mouths of subsequent patients. Therefore, non-disposable hand pieces and other intraoral instruments need to be removed from the air and waterlines of dental units, cleaned, and heat-sterilized between patients which is time consuming and costly. Single-use saliva ejectors, HVE tips and prophy angles allow dental health care personal to dispose items after use thus reducing reduce the risk of infection and time spent reprocessing contaminated instruments.
