Infection Control in the Dental Office: That Thing You Do – Why Do You Do It?

Workplace injuries come in all forms, but some of the most dangerous ones are the ones we can't see. Blood borne and respiratory infections are a very real risk to dental staff but can be easily managed by following infection prevention regulations and recommendations for dentistry.

This seminar will help you answer the questions: Are you following proper infection control protocols? Are you up to date on provincial and national guidelines? What can you do to prevent IPAC lapses? This seminar will ensure dental offices are not only following regulations, but also observing best practices in infection prevention and control.

Presenter Dr. John Molinari has spent a lifetime studying, writing about and teaching infection control. In his two-and-a-half-hour presentation, Dr. Molinari examines the biggest risks in infection control for dental health care professionals today, and what steps you can take to guard against them.

 control recommendations.
