Validation in Instrument Reprocessing: Because “Partially Sterile” is NOT an Option

Released: 03/06/20
Presenter: Dr. Marie Fluent

When a patient is seated in the operatory, s/he assumes that the packaged instruments on the bracket table have been properly cleaned and sterilized. The patient may be confident that these instruments are safe for dental care, or the patient may express concern—or yet remain silent but worry.

Dental team members may experience similar concerns, even when following proper policies and protocol. The question remains: Since sterility cannot be seen, how can we be assured that dental instruments have been adequately cleaned and sterilized? This webinar will address instrument cleaning validation as the first step to ensure the delivery of sterile instruments for safe patient care - because “partially sterile” is NOT an option.
