In dentistry, infection prevention can mean the difference between life and death
Though rare, reports of dental healthcare-acquired infections over the years have included the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B (HBV), Hepatitis C (HCV), influenza and more. These harmful pathogens and associated diseases not only pose a danger to patients and staff but are a liability to any practice.
Therefore, it’s critical to take the proper steps—and use the right products—to combat infection and ensure the safety of your patients, personnel and practice.
One of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection is by cleaning and disinfecting clinical contact surfaces. When instruments, devices, hands or gloves come in contact with surfaces, they can become reservoirs of microbial contamination. Common examples of clinical contact surfaces include light handles and switches, reusable dental materials containers, cabinetry, countertops, dental chairs and telephone handles. While barriers can offer surface protection during treatment, specially-formulated products such as Medicom Pro-Surface® Disinfectant Spray and Wipes can help keep surfaces contamination-free between patients.
Pro-Surface is an intermediate-level disinfectant that cleans, disinfects and deodorizes non-critical and non-porous hard surfaces and inanimate objects.
With powerful one-step cleaning and disinfection and a best-in-class disinfection time of one minute, Pro-Surface is designed to maximize workflow efficiency and effectiveness.
Featuring Medicom TotalClean™ technology, Pro-Surface delivers broad-spectrum bactericidal activity, eliminating 48 pathogens including bacteria, viruses, fungi and TB. Thanks to its low toxicity rating, low quaternary ammonium content and bleach-free composition, the product offers an excellent safety profile. This means no special handling or protective eyewear is required for use and Pro-Surface will not damage non-porous instruments or surfaces or leave behind residue. Pro-Surface is also fragrance-free, so you can maintain compliance without disrupting office operations.
Formulated for compatibility with a wide range of surfaces and materials, Pro-Surface is suitable for cleaning and disinfecting cabinetry, countertops, vinyl and polyurethane dental chair upholstery and more.
The easy-to-use solution is available in two convenient formats: wipes designed for quick clean-up between patients and spray for more thorough end-of-day use. Wipes are available in two sizes (6” x 6.75” and 9” x 12”) to meet all your infection prevention needs.
