Keywords: Cost of Hygiene Procedures, Consultation and Dental Treatment Center
Our study’s main goal is to assess the overall cost of asepsis and hygiene procedures across all divisions of the dental consultation and treatment center. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted to meet this goal, and data were gathered using a questionnaire customized for the investigation. Software called SPSS was used for the data analysis. The findings of our survey have drawn attention to the significant expense incurred by the Casablanca Dental Consultation and Treatment Center (CDCT) in order to adhere to the various asepsis and hygiene recommendations. Each CDCT department is equipped with various methods for patient protection, consumables they will need, pre-disinfection, packaging, and sterilization equipment. When compared to other departments, some, like conservative dentistry and assistant and joint prosthesis, use more gloves than others. The CDCT can continue to improve the standard and cost of hygiene by applying recommendations, being organized rigorously, respecting the asepsis chain, and having management expertise.
