The December edition of ADA Professional Product Review examines occupational risk of percutaneous injuries in dental practice and also evaluates vinyl polysiloxane occlusal registration materials.
Percutaneous injuries include those made by sharps, needles and burs. The article, “Safe Injection Practices: Protecting Dentists, Their Staff and Their Patients,” explores examples of products and resources to prevent percutaneous injury risks.
Vinyl polysiloxane occlusal registration materials also get The Review treatment, with an evaluation of eight products that the ADA purchased and tested in its laboratory.
Previously a quarterly printed publication distributed with JADA, the Review transitioned to an online quarterly publication in April 2012 with an executive summary published in JADA. The December issue is the third that is fully online.
