Study Finds 20-30% of Dental Bib Clips Harbor Bacteria Even After Disinfection

OXNARD, CALIF. – Aug. 21, 2012 – Researchers at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, in collaboration with researchers at the Forsyth Institute, published a study today that found 20 to 30% of dental bib clips still harbor bacterial contaminants even after proper disinfection procedures. Rubber-faced metal bib clips were found to retain more bacteria than bib clips made only of metal before disinfection. The study also found that before disinfection, bib clips used during orthodontic procedures had three times the bacterial load of those used during endodontic procedures, suggesting that the nature of dental treatment impacts the number of bacteria present on the clips. The full study titled “Do Bib Clips Pose a Cross-Contamination Risk at the Dental Clinic?” is now available for download at www.duxdental.com/bibclipstudy.
