World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “3- Servicios de salud bucodental/COVID-19: procedimientos de limpieza, desinfección, esterilización” – below is their description.

En este breve vídeo se explican las recomendaciones de la Organización Mundial de la Salud sobre los procedimientos de limpieza, desinfección y esterilización que deben aplicarse en los servicios de atención de la salud bucodental durante la pandemia de COVID-19. Los procedimientos están diseñados para proteger tanto a los pacientes como al personal de atención de la salud bucodental frente a la infección por el virus de la COVID-19.

El vídeo está destinado principalmente a la formación de equipos de salud bucodental en materia de prevención y control de infecciones. En términos más generales, los destinatarios son las autoridades de salud pública, en particular los responsables de la salud bucodental, y el personal de atención de la salud bucodental que realiza o asiste en los procedimientos descritos y que trabaja tanto en el sector público como en el privado. Las personas que estén pensando en pedir una cita para recibir atención bucodental también pueden encontrarlo útil como referencia para las prácticas que deben esperar en los establecimientos de atención de la salud bucodental durante la pandemia y después de ella.
