This process begins with the selection of packaging materials that are optimal for the instrument management system, utilization of process indicators and integrators, placement in the sterilizer, appropriate drying, and storage of instrument packages. This CE webinar will be based on the CDC Guidelines for Dental Health Care Settings, as well as the CDC Guidelines for Sterilization and Disinfection in Health Care Settings.

The safety of you and your patients depends upon properly cleaned and sterilized instruments that do not transmit infectious organisms/diseases between patients or between your patient and you. Different dental disciplines may have slightly different infection control practices. For example, the oral surgeon may put additional emphasis on aseptic technique, the importance of low linting materials, and the need for stringent attention to sterilization procedures as they are performing more invasive procedures. This program addresses practices and recommended protocols for packaging and sterilization of dental instruments, and outlines different packaging options for sterilization.
