  • 1.  
  • 2. Times Are Changing
    • The dentist-to-population ratio has been declining since 1995, more dentists will be leaving than entering the workforce.
    • Population projections through 2025 are approximately +20% in the U.S. and +16% in Canada.
    • With people living longer and improved oral health, the number of teeth to be cared for is increasing at a faster rate than the population.
    • Of occupational exposure injuries in dentistry, 31% occur during instrument clean-up.

    Let’s see how IMS can help you achieve these goals by creating a new sterilization environment that:
  • 5. Process Flow
    • The first step is to establish a protocol that allows for efficient processing from chairside through storage, that will not only be more effective – it will reduce instrument wear, provide safer techniques, and increase productivity.
  • 6. Processing Recommendations
    • In this chart, OSAP highlighted the key areas the central processing area should be divided into:
      • Receiving, cleaning
      • Rinsing and drying
      • Preparation and packaging
