I would say it is very, very rare. But anything can happen, I guess. Instruments are sterilized after every patient and kept in the package they were sterilized in until just before the patient is seated. To get any sort of infection from a dental office would be very rare. And the staph infection probably came from an outside source and got into the mouth, not from the instruments or dental office. That is my opinion. Causing death; I have no idea how long it would take between contacting staph and dying from it. That would be something you probably need to talk to your doctor about.
