This CE webinar will discuss one of the most critical steps in instrument processing – instrument cleaning. It is well-documented in the research that instrument sterilization is not effective if the instruments are not clean and free of debris. Learn about the latest developments in cleaning solutions and techniques, compare the efficiency and effectiveness of ultrasonic cleaners vs. instrument washers and other techniques to enhance instrument processing and safety.
Upon completion the participant will be able to: 1. Identify the critical steps in effective instrument processing 2. Differentiate between the two most common instrument cleaning techniques, ultrasonic cleaning and the use of instrument washers 3. Identify the safety hazards of hand-scrubbing of dental instruments
