Once a dental procedure is complete and the patient dismissed from the operatory, contaminated instruments and devices lie on bracket tables and countertops in a state of disarray. Yet, as the next patient is seated, wrapped and sterile instrument packages curiously seem to reemerge as they lie ready and waiting to be utilized for safe patient care. This CE webinar will review the behind-the-scenes journey that dental instruments continuously take via the instrument processing pathway. Along this complex, continuous and cyclical journey, current standards, best practices, and methods of sterility assurance will be addressed. With attention to detail, dental personnel may maximize infection prevention goals and assure safe work environment for those involved in sterilization and disinfection tasks.
