Overall Classification: UNCLASSIFIED//REL TO NATO/ISAF
The Reception area is where patients are received. The dental charts and patient scheduler are kept in the administration section. The patients must wait in a separate section from the storage area of charts to maintain patient confidentiality.
The dental scheduler is a system to organize patient appointments. It can either be an appointment book or a computer software program.
Storage area for charts Seating area for patients
The dental Operatory is where patient treatment takes place. The basic equipment found in each Operatory includes a patient dental chair, chair for dental provider, sink, cabinets for storage, an operating light and a compressor to power the handpieces.
Important considerations for the dental operatory are: Comfort and mobility for the dental team Privacy and comfort for the patient Uncluttered for efficient cleaning and disinfection
Mobile Cart Used for storage. At times, the cabinet has wheels making it mobile, and can be used as additional work space
Dental Instruments Explorer Probe Mirror Cotton Forceps
Sharps Container Puncture resistant container to collect used sharp items. Marked biohazardous.
A Radiology room generally has a radiology apparatus to take x-rays and a patient chair. X-ray film is stored in a different area to prevent scatter radiation damaging the unused film.
If there is no window in the radiology room to view the patient during the exposure of radiographs, the operator must be able to be a minimum distance of 3 meters or 10 feet away from the central ray of the unit during the exposure.
Different sizes to accommodate different areas of the mouth. Size 0- pedo or child size film Size 1- anterior teeth Size 2- posterior teeth Size 4- occlusal film
The sterilization room (or central processing area) should be divided into sections for: Receiving, cleaning and decontamination; Preparation and packaging; Sterilization; and Storage.
The contaminated instruments must never be placed on the sterile instrument side and the sterile instruments must never be stored in the cleaning area. Doing this will contaminate sterile instruments.
Ultrasonic Cleaner A rapid and almost complete removal of debris from objects by immersing them in a tank of liquid flooded with high frequency sound waves. These sound waves create a scrubbing brush action within the fluid.
Water distiller Removes water impurities by boiling the water and then condensing the steam into a clean container. Important for steam sterilizers.
Sterilizer Apparatus that kills bacteria or other microorganisms using high heat and steam or chemicals under pressure.
The supply room is a storage area for dental consumables and supplies such as: Anesthetic supplies Restorative supplies Surgical supplies Personal protective equipment Radiographic supplies Sterilization and disinfection supplies.
Like items should be stored together and identified for ease of locating.
