Infection prevention
with W&H

  • People have Priority

    W&H is taking selective measures to interrupt the chain of infection. And everyone needs to do their part: Please contribute to your personal protection by using personal protective equipment such as mask, gloves and safety goggles!

    Being aware of the current covid-19 situation, we draw attention again to the importance of the hygiene workflow. Germs can also be transmitted through contaminated dental instruments. For 130 years, W&H has lived by the core principle "People have Priority". Rest assured your health, the well-being of patients and of course your business are an important motivating factor for us.

    As a manufacturer of medical devices, it is our responsibility to inform you about the most important hygiene measures. With many years of experience in the reprocessing of dental instruments and our know-how concerning the manufacturing of corresponding devices, we will guide you step by step through the hygiene workflow. In this way, we can provide you with the best possible support in your day-to-day operations and in your dental practice, ensuring best practice reprocessing and thus your personal protection.

    Interrupting the chain of infection

    What is the chain of infection?

    The chain of infection is the way of transmitting an infection from one host to another. Hosts can be humans, animals, but also other environmental components. The transfer can take place mutually.

    The infection chain consists of six different links: first, the pathogen. In second place is the reservoir, where the pathogens replicate and can cause further infections. Third, the portal of exit, for example through sneezing or coughing (airborne infection) or other body fluids.

    The modes of transmission, the fourth link in the chain, take place indirectly by touching living beings or contaminated objects or directly, by smear infection. Now the portal of entry opens the door for the pathogen. This means that the pathogens eventually reach the next susceptible host through the mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth, nose, the digestive system or excoriations. People with a weakened immune system are particularly affected. (The time between contamination and onset of symptoms is called the incubation.)
    However, this chain of infection can be interrupted through various means and on each link. W&H is taking selective measures with Advanced Infection prevention Management Solutions.
