Dental settings can also be breeding grounds for
bacteria and other harmful pathogens
Infection control is essential in dental offices because it helps prevent the spread of illness and disease. Many dental procedures involve the use of sharp instruments, creating entry points for infection. Some procedures create droplets and aerosols that linger in the air and on surfaces. Without proper infection control measures, these pathogens can impact patient health and spread from patient to patient, putting everyone working in and visiting the dental office at risk.
One of the most effective means of preventing the spread of infection in dental settings is the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). Another, of course, is the proper disinfection of all surfaces and equipment between patients. This includes keyboards which, many important studies show, harbor harmful bacteria and germs, particularly keyboards shared amongst staff and dentists.
The KSI-1801 SX and KSI-2001 keyboards are designed specifically with infection control in mind and present the perfect solution for dental settings. Both keyboards feature a crevice-free silicone cover that is impervious to dirt and the accumulation of germs, making them simple and quick to disinfect between patients. Further, the keyboards accommodate the use of EPA-approved germicidal wipes commonly used by healthcare, ensuring that the surface can be thoroughly wiped clean without damage.
KSI’s integrated LinkSmart® cleaning button temporarily disengages keys and allows users to easily disinfect the silicone surface without entry of errant data. Accompanying (no-cost) San-a-Key® software is a powerful tool that guides user cleaning with an onscreen keyboard schematic, ensuring every key is cleaned – a quick and easy process. Disinfection can be scheduled so that keyboards are cleaned at set intervals throughout the day, with push reminders being sent to each user’s computer desktop. LinkSmart® with San-a-Key® constitutes a comprehensive keyboard cleaning and monitoring system.

In addition to their infection control features, the compact KSI-1801 SX and full-size KSI-2001 SX keyboards are also designed for comfort, efficiency, and convenience. The keyboards feature a low-profile design, making them comfortable to use for extended periods. Tactile feedback is soft touch, providing a satisfying, quiet typing experience that doesn’t tire the user. The KSI-1801 SX also features backlit keys for when use in darkened conditions is required.
Infection control is a critical component of dental care. The KSI-1801 SX and KSI-2001 SX keyboards are essential tools that can help prevent the spread of illness and disease in dental settings. By using KSI keyboards, dental professionals can ensure that their patients receive the highest level of care while maintaining a safe and health environment.
