Infection Control in Dental Offices

Ernest Lado, DDS (view profile)

Price: $37.85
Duration: 5 Hours

An Infection Control Program (ICP) aimed at preventing the transmission of infectious diseases from one person to another is vital to a well run dental practice, but how far should the practice be expected to go in its efforts to prevent disease transmission? What are reasonable measures that protect patients and health care workers from unnecessary exposure to potentially infectious materials? Do we need to "sterilize the office" to achieve proper infection control?

Can we prevent disease transmission without going overboard? Can scientific logic guide us when we design an effective infection control program? Isn't scientific logic simply another term for common sense?

This course will provide you with the answer to these questions. When you finish it, you will have a thorough understanding of disease transmission, a working knowledge of infection control principles, and insight into sound work practice controls founded on microbiologic principles. You will be able to design an infection control plan to accommodate the circumstances inherent to your particular practice. The concepts you learn will facilitate your infection control decision-making. You'll be glad you took the course.
