Keller Family Dental Explains their Infection Control Protocols
Date:5/3/2013

Keller, TX (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

Keller Family Dental explains their own infection control protocols; in the wake of the recent news according to CNN, of an Oklahoma dentist not practicing regulated infection controls.

As a standard they use CaviWipes for all surfaces and countertops. CaviWipes are effective against Staphylococcus Aureus with reduced susceptibility to Vancomycin and Influenza A2 Virus.

The process, called cavitation, reaches into tiny cracks and crevices, literally blasting contaminants away from the surface in a much more efficient manner than manual scrubbing, which has the additional disadvantage of requiring personnel to handle dirty instruments.

The second step is an autoclave. It is a machine that sterilizes all the instruments. Sterilization means the complete destruction of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and endospores. This is accomplished by the material being exposed to a temperature of 121 degrees Celsius, or 250 degrees Fahrenheit, for at least 15 minutes. Optimal temperature is reached through the use of pressurized steam. Keller Family Dental’s autoclave can reach temperatures of 273 degrees and can process for 45 minutes. Autoclave bags are imprinted with a dye that changes color when the correct tem
