For California dentists: Q Review, Winter 2017
Testing your office sterilizers each week is required by the California Dental Board. This requirement includes using biologic indicators (not paper strips or packaging that changes color) and testing all sterilizers, even those used infrequently or as backup. During an onsite Quality Assessment review, the examiner checks your in-office spore testing log to ensure your compliance with regulations.
