RDH Freedom Handpiece

We wish to get the RDH Freedom cordless handpick into our practice. We had the rep come to the office. I’m presenting at our staff meeting tomorrow morning. I’m pretty sure I’m solid, but would love any feedback; we all are in our 40’s/50’s/ 60’s with shoulder/hand issues so it will really be great I think!!! Thank you so much, Love, Elizabeth

I’ve heard mixed reviews on the Midwest Freedom handpiece. Many love the fact that its cordless, however for some it doesn’t have enough power to remove stain as well as a typical handpiece. I have concerns about the infection control of this handpiece. Even though handpieces are considered semi-critical devices, which means barriers and surface disinfecting applies, handpieces are an exception to this rule. The CDC states, “studies have shown that handpieces can become contaminated internally with patient materials and the next patient may be exposed to potentially infectious materials. Handpieces should always be heat sterilized after each patient.” The CDC further states, “handpieces that cannot be heat sterilized should not be used.” I bring this up because the Midwest Freedom’s motor cannot be sterilized, only the outer sheath. For me this is a dilemma! I personally love the Young Hygiene Handpiece. It’s light and the ergonomics are awesome. Good luck in your decision!
