Kevin D Plummer, C. W. Wakefield

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Regardless of the dental laboratory infection control methods that are used, excellent communication and cooperation between laboratory staff members and clients must be maintained. The safety of patients is assured only through confidence that dentists and dental technicians use the proper procedures correctly. Whenever a question exists about possible contamination of an item that is brought into the laboratory, the item should be treated as contaminated until processed by prescribed methods.
