To spray or not to spray
Dental Economics
When the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and the CDC Recommended Infection Control Practices for Dentistry were first established in 1991 and 1993, respectively, the CDC recommendation was to use the spray-wipe-spray technique for applying surface disinfectants. Prior to that, many dental practices simply used 2x2 gauze sponges saturated (soaked, actually) with 70 percent isopropyl alcohol to clean and disinfect treatment room surfaces.

How voice recognition software helps facilitate periodontal charting data
Dentistry IQ
For decades, hygienists have probed clinical pocket depths and attachment levels, which have been recognized as the dentist's most important tools in diagnosing periodontal health and disease. We once tortured peers as we learned how to stand tall on our fulcrums in an attempt to master the walking stroke. Holding our breaths as our faculty evaluated the pocket depths to ensure our four wasn't a six, we learned the importance of early intervention in the prevention of bone loss early in our hygiene curriculum.
