IMPORTANT! Please remember to use only approved disinfectants with Schick sensors and their USB, WiFi, and Ethernet interfaces. Using unapproved disinfectants may produce issues with the physical appearance of the product and potentially its operation.
IMPORTANT! Please be sure to disconnect the Schick Sensor from the USB Remote Module and the USB cable before performing any cleaning/disinfection procedures.
The Schick sensor should be thoroughly cleaned after each use. The following cleaning and disinfection recommendations are intended to accomplish intermediate-level disinfection and will prepare the product to be safely used and reused during its life.

If you are using a holder system other than a Dentsply Sirona holder system, please refer to the product documentation or company website for additional information regarding how to care for that product.
