Infection Prevention Solutions for Dental Professionals

Dental instruments, hands, common surfaces… you know how vital it is to stop microorganisms from spreading at every touchpoint throughout your practice. Personal protective equipment and sterilisation all help prevent cross-contamination – and help reduce the risk that pathogens pose to your patients and your staff.

  • Your team is dedicated to patient care. 3M stands with you, and strives to provide PPE that your staff will feel comfortable – and confident – about wearing. Learn more about our dental face masks and filtering facepiece respirators, and discover the science of safety.

  • Adequate fit and seal of filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs) are required to provide expected and effective exposure reduction. The proper seal helps ensure that the majority of inhaled air will travel through the respirator’s filter material. Anything that disrupts the fit and seal of the FFR will result in a reduction in the level of protection that the wearer can achieve with the FFR. Certain 3M skin health products may help protect the skin and not interfere with the fit of the respirator.

  • Sterilisation assurance is about more than recordkeeping. It’s the knowledge that your instruments are being properly sterilised every time. It’s the ability to reduce the time required to obtain critical information about the sterilisation process. And it’s the confidence that comes with adhering to best practices for infection prevention.
