Bib clip hygenistDental Learning, in collaboration with DUX Dental, Oxnard, Calif, will host “Bib Clips: Sitting with the Enemy. How to Prevent Cross-Contamination and Improve Infection Control,” a free webinar highlighting the dental bib clip, a potential source of cross contamination in a dental office.

Presented by Fiona M. Collins, BDS, and Noel Brandon-Kelsch, RDHAP, the webinar will feature recent research findings, and discuss actionable steps dental professionals can take to enhance their infection control practices and prevent the risk of bacterial transmission through bib clips.

“Six research studies and reports in the U.S. and overseas have found bacterial contamination on dental bib holders even after disinfection,” said Stacey Williams, director of marketing at DUX Dental. “If dental practices aren’t using a disposable holder or autoclaving their bib clips they could be exposing patients and themselves to undue risk.”

The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, June 27, 2013, at 8pm EDT. For more information and to register, click here.
