On Wednesday, February 12, at 7 pm EST, Gerard Kugel, DMD, MS, PhD, will present a free webinar on the cross contamination risks from dental bib clips. The discussion, titled “Cross Contamination from Dental Bib Holders: Implications for Your Practice,” will cover the risks of bib clip cross contamination and compare the advantages and disadvantages of current disinfection methods and options. Kugel also will analyze the costs of sterilizing reusable bib clips versus the costs of disposable bib holders.
“I teach and work in private practice, and I know as well as anyone that the issue of touching things with contaminated gloves is an issue all dental professionals have to be aware of,” Kugel said. “It is a very difficult thing to avoid, and bib clips are in the line of fire.”
