A dental burr storage system for storing of dental burrs in a polymer, such as a polysulfone structure for storage as well as for sterilization. With the concern over AIDS, patients are now requiring dentists to store their personal dental burrs in their own storage container. The container provides for storage of the dental burrs, as well as sterilization of the dental burrs. The storage system includes a dental burr base and a dental burr cap, which threads onto the base in either a storage position for the dental burrs or a support position for the dental burrs. The base includes a plurality of holes on a cylindrical member for passage of gases during sterilization procedures. A threaded cap also includes a plurality of holes for passage of gases during a sterilization procedure.
