CDC Recommendations for Dental Handpieces
Important CDC Guidelines
MTI Precision Products
According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines, all Dental Practitioners must sterilize each of their dental handpieces and associated attachments once between each patient. It is unacceptable to now use high-level disinfection wipes exclusively, as a sterilization method.
If not properly sterilized, subsequent patients may be inadvertently exposed to potentially infectious and harmful material and contaminants.
MTI Precision Products (MTI Dental) produces fully autoclavable handpieces which are ergonomic, easy to sterilize, and simple to maintain -- which help to create uniformity and simplicity in each dental office. With an appropriate number of dental handpieces, and associated attachments, MTI Dental can help your office properly ensure a safe and sterile environment for both staff and patients.
