    Background: With the rise in the awareness about the mode of transmission of pathogens, the lights shifted onto the various procedures involving laboratory processing. The organisms transmitted from the impression to the cast and to the dental laboratory have been studied numerous times; however, the organisms transmitted back from the dental laboratory to the dental office to the patient’s mouth have not been reported or recorded. Aim: The aim of the study is to evaluate the organisms transmitted from the laboratory to the dental office and vice versa transmitted from the dental office to the laboratory. Materials and Methods: Laboratories in and around the city of Chennai were chosen to collect the samples. The closed tray master impressions of the implant Stage II cases were collected. 20 samples were collected before the impressions were sent to the laboratory as well as once the dental prosthesis was received back from the laboratory. The samples were collected and cultured to study the organisms and identify the pathogenic organisms. Results: The samples sent from the dental clinic showed mainly Gram-positive cocci in clusters and pairs. However, when the same samples were received from the laboratory, some samples showed Gram-negative cocci and bacilli. However, none of the organisms found were pathogenic strains. Conclusion: Sterilization protocols should be performed, to eliminate any form of risk of infection, for the prosthesis received back from the laboratory and then inserted into the patient’s mouth; similarly, the objects sent to the dental laboratory should be sterilized before they come in contact with the technician to avoid any cross-contamination.
