Webcast Description:

Optimal infection control practices are a key aspect of dental professionals’ ongoing education. Until the late ‘80s, these practices were not regulated or monitored by outside entities; however, today’s infection control protocols and practices are impacted by OSHA, CDC, and state licensing boards. The World Health Organization also provides resources regarding infection prevention worldwide. Together these entities provide the foundation for sound infection control practices that will protect both clinicians as well as patients. Defining the roles of each entity/agency and what they bring to infection prevention is important for every member of the dental team and to meet the mandatory licensing requirements. It’s also important as they provide dental practices with methods to develop and maintain optimal infection control protocols and practices.
