Description of Presentation
This one hour webinar has been developed to raise awareness around medical device reprocessing within the practice of dentistry while being keenly aware that many of the challenges faced in dentistry can also be applied to other community or non-hospital healthcare providers such as private physicians’ offices and footcare. The discussion will examine root causes for adversity in becoming current with best practices as well as describing concepts and practices that are commonly misunderstood in the community setting. Finally, there will be a brief overview of those devices that create the greatest challenges in reprocessing for dentistry.
