Going to the dentist’s office is one of the most dreaded things we all have to do! There will no doubt be some pain and uncomfortability during the procedure. No one likes being poked and probed especially in an area as sensitive as our mouths.
“Every day, bacteria and viruses are passed between people at home, in the workplace and in the community. Given the number of these organisms found in the mouth and nasopharynx and the potential for aerosolization of blood and saliva during dental procedures, it is likely that transmission occurs frequently in this setting.
Carriers of bacteria may be asymptomatic, and transmission to the dental worker and patients can occur if infection control measures, such as use of gloves, masks, protective eye wear and hand hygiene practices are not adhered to.”

Look for the dentist/ assistant/ hygienist to open the dental instruments after you arrive in the operatory. If they are already open when you arrive, they are no longer sterile. Once the instruments are opened, they are exposed to the surrounding environment. Floor cleaning services are also very important as many patients come on floor. You should always pay attention to every minor occurrence as this is your health and should priority one.
