It’s just like the one in your kitchen at home, but the Refrigerator in a dental office is used to keep certain types of filling material and x-ray films cool.
The Autoclave sterilizes instruments with heat or steam: over 270°F!
Surface cleansers are used to clean countertops, x-ray machines and other surfaces in the dental operatory.
Some dental offices have a dryer for dental instruments leaving the Ultrasonic Cleaner before they enter the Autoclave.
