Infection Prevention & Control: In the Dental Office
Infection prevention and control is an important factor in the dental office. There are many routine practices in place that could use a bit of fine-tuning or a reminder of why it is so important for us to continue to do it.
Looking at the correct methods for sterilization monitoring, record keeping and draping of the operatory during surgical procedures is key. Continuing education on this topic is strongly recommended. Verifying with current practices within the office will lend confidence to your daily tasks as we compare them to current Public Health checklists.
