Cross Infection Control
Instrument Cleaning

Dentaljuce’s excellent module on Cross Infection Control in Dentistry is written in straightforward language for the whole dental team, and covers all you could want to know about this increasingly important core verifiable CPD topic for dentists and dental nurses. If you haven’t subscribed to dentaljuce yet, why not join us now at this amazingly low price !

 Surveys in the UK showed that dental surgeries are generally very poor at instrument cleaning prior to sterilisation – they rely mostly on the autoclave to do the cleaning, which it is not designed for.

This page looks at the washer disinfector, which is starting to appear in dental surgeries as the ultimate way to ensure instrument cleaning is done properly and safely. Aimed at reducing prion infections, it is a very costly bit of equipment. There are no known cases of prion infection in the UK from dentistry. Is it money well spent? Decide for yourself after checking out the juce.
