Summary

  • Employers in dentistry must provide facilities and instructions for hand washing after removing gloves and for washing skin immediately after contact with blood or infectious materials.
  • Safe handling of needles and sharp items is required. Contaminated sharps are considered regulated waste and must be discarded in hard-walled containers. Contaminated equipment that needs servicing must first be decontaminated or labeled with a biohazard sign.
  • Employees are provided with free laundering of PPE and vaccinations against infectious diseases.
  • Disposable or single-use needles and sharps should be prescribed and disposed of in hard-walled, leak-proof containers. Containers for these items must bear a biohazard label.
  • PPE, including gloves and masks, should be provided to employees and clear instructions for use of universal precautions should be given.
  • Surfaces and the environment must be sanitized as soon as feasible after treatment. A written schedule for cleaning should be provided.
  • Clinical contact surfaces have a high potential for direct contamination and should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Housekeeping surfaces have a limited risk of disease transmission.
  • Waterline biofilms, accumulations of microorganisms in moist environments such as dental unit water lines, can harbor bacteria, fungi, and viruses. These organisms form a slimy protective layer that makes them resistant to disinfectants.
  • To prevent waterborne diseases, it is recommended to avoid using water from public water supplies for dental procedures, and to use sterile water or distilled water for irrigation.
  • Rooms should be fumigated with a chemical like formalin to decontaminate or disinfect them.
  • In dentistry, potential fomites include instruments, impression trays, and suction tips.
  • Hepatitis B, C, and HIV are bloodborne pathogens that can spread from person to person through contact with blood or other bodily fluids. HIV, in particular, can be transmitted through dental procedures that induce bleeding.
  • Engineering controls, such as safer design, personal protective equipment (PPE), and work practice controls, should be utilized to prevent exposure to bloodborne pathogens.
  • Sharps containers and medical devices with injury protection features are examples of engineering controls.
  • Safer design can include using instruments and changing the manner of performing tasks.
  • NACO Guidelines recommend against using antiretroviral therapy (ART) in certain situations, such as when the exposed person is already HIV positive or when the exposure occurred more than 72 hours ago.
  • The reported frequency of HIV transmissions from dentists to patients is low.
  • Bloodborne viruses are often carried by persons unaware of their infection.
  • It is recommended to avoid using water from public water supplies for dental procedures, and to use sterile water or distilled water for irrigation.
  • Rooms should be fumigated with a chemical like formalin to decontaminate or disinfect them.
  • Fomites, such as instruments, impression trays, and suction tips, can transmit infectious organisms.
  • Diseases that must be aware of in a dental clinic include Hepatitis, HIV, Tuberculosis, Herpes, and Candida.
  • Bloodborne pathogens can produce chronic infection and are often carried by persons unaware of their infection.
  • Only one documented case of HIV transmission from an infected dentist to patients has been reported.
  • Bloodborne viruses are transmitted through contact with blood or other bodily fluids.
