Course description

Infection Control in the Dental Office: It’s Everyone’s Responsibility

Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018
Presented by Dr. John A. Molinari, PhD

This course will provide an update on occupational blood borne and respiratory infection risks for dental healthcare professionals, as well as a practical discussion of current infection prevention regulations and recommendations for dentistry. The most recent Canadian recommendations concerning blood borne pathogens and infection control will be presented, along with updates on other regulations as they pertain to dental settings. Hand hygiene, vaccinations, and other preventive measures (i.e. personal protective equipment, instrument reprocessing, disinfection, and dental water asepsis) are frameworks for this presentation.  Infectious disease challenges and prevention strategies will be used to reinforce the application of standard precautions during patient treatment. The most recent evidence-based information will also be discussed to address certain issues where perceptions and misuse of infection control procedures and products are in conflict with scientific and clinical knowledge.
