Biohazardous Sharps Disposal for Dental Assistants
Wisconsin Dental Assistant School Teaches Safest Methods
A Biohazardous Sharps Container will be kept as close as possible to the area where sharps will be immediately discarded. It is red in color and will have a “Biohazard Symbol” on it. It is leak proof, puncture resistant, and is closeable when the contents reach the full line. They come in a variety of sizes and styles from 1 pint to 18 gallons. Any items considered to be sharp are disposed of in this container. This includes any item that is capable of puncturing the skin.
Examples of sharps include:
- Scalpel blades
- Glass anesthetic carpules
- Root canal files
- Exposed ends of dental wires
These sharp items are dropped into the container without touching the outside of the container when discarding. The use of a proper sharps container helps protect from the environment. Proper guidelines are then followed for the disposal of this medical waste.
Dental Assistant Curriculum Uses Hands-on Approach
At the Weekend Dental Assistant School, students spend half the class learning in a traditional classroom lecture setting. The other half is spent in clinical lectures, where students practice the skills they just learned and get a feel for how things operate in an office setting. When you complete the course, you will arrive to your first day of your new job with the confidence and conviction of someone who knows what they’re doing.
You will learn:
- OSHA Requirements
- Four-Handed Dentistry
- Sterilization Procedures
- Dental X-Rays
- Dental and Oral Anatomy
…and many more valuable skills for pursuing a career in dental assistance.
