Asepsis in dental office
Every medical or dental office is potentially a space where agents of infection can be easily
transmitted to others. It is called: Cross-Contamination.
Everyday health professionals (doctors, dentists, surgeons, nurses, ophthalmologists, etc) are
confronted with these risks of Cross-Contamination coming from patients (patients already infected
by pathogenic germs, or also from medical staff).
Problems of Cross-Contamination must not be minimized nor exaggerated, but in our case, dentists
should be aware of these problems in their office, not only for themselves but also for their patients
and staff as well.
