With a new dentist in town I'm leaning new things. Dr. Stinchfield is an oral surgeon and had a different kind of practice, technique and instruments. His instruments need to be available all at once, so instead of being wrapped in individual pouches then autoclaved, the instruments are wrapped up in a towel all together. They have this amazing tape that lets you know when it is sterilized.
Tape indicates with stripes when hot enough to be sterile
An arrow turns from pink to brown when pouches are sterile
