How do professionals remove bed bugs from the dental clinics?

This dental team member was mortified to see bed bugs crawling on her patient. What can the dental office do to make sure the staff and other patients don’t pick up any bed bugs?

Some people may get nervous about going to the dentist office, but pests don’t seem to hesitate. Even if your exam and procedure rooms are sterile and your waiting and reception areas are clean as a whistle, persistent pests can still find their way in. While good sanitation is certainly one facet of pest prevention, it’s not the only factor. Pests can be found even in areas that look and smell clean.
