Dux Dental has introduced a tray cover with a secure seal to its line of office organization products to help oral care professionals create a safe environment for practitioners and patients.
The Dux Dental Tray Cover with Secure Seal is transparent and compatible with the company's Size B Flat and Size B Divided dental trays and will stay sealed if accidentally dropped.
Using a tray cover is critical to upholding infection-control standards in the oral healthcare environment, because it allows dental professionals and orthodontists to cover instruments when moving them to the sterilization area, according to Dux.
Trays are required to be covered when being transported to the sterilization area in an office, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
"I utilize a tray cover for all of my trays. The new DUX Dental tray lids have the added benefit of snapping into place. The secure seal allows me to transport the tray safely and securely from the operatory after patient care, which protects dental professionals and patients from any cross contamination or accidents," stated Noel Brandon-Kelsch, RDHAP, in a press release.
The Tray Cover with Secure Seal is available for order at www.duxdental.com under product number No. 31529 for the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $15.00.
