CDC Regulations on Handpieces

Medidenta - CDC Regulations on Handpieces

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines, all Dental handpieces that connect and disconnect to an airline must be sterilized along with associated attachments once between each patient. While there are only select states currently the word is spreading, and more and more dental practitioners are moving towards complete compliance.  This recommendation includes but is not limited to high speed, low speed, surgical, along with nose cones and other attachments used with forced air. The recommendation is that if not properly sterilized, subsequent patients may be inadvertently exposed to potentially infectious and harmful material and contaminants.
