Dental Insights

The MDS Dental Practice Committee recommends that every dental team member start his or her work day with a 15-second handwash with warm water and liquid soap from a hands-free dispenser. Make this infection control practice a routine in your office, as this simple hand-washing routine will substantially reduce the risk of transferring pathogens to your patients or other dental team members. 

Be sure to repeat this 15-second handwash:

  • Between patients 
  • Before and after lunch, taking a break, or using the bathroom 
  • Before and after gloving 
  • Any other time they become contaminated 
  • At the end of the work day
