Dental Office Infection Control in the 21st Century
Dental office infection control has evolved since the 1992 OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and the 1994 New York State mandatory training requirement were introduced. Practices have continued to evolve and incorporate periodic updates from federal, state and local advisory and regulatory agencies (ADA, CDC, FDA, EPA, DEC, OSAP etc.). In addition new infection control products and materials have been introduced over the last two decades. The net result of this progress is, Infection Control in the 21st Century, a broad-based, comprehensive approach encompassing all aspects of dental office operations.
Participants in this course will understand and be familiar with the most recent CDC recommendations for dental office infection control.
- Participation in this course complies with the annual OSHA training requirement.
- Course completion fulfills NYS Department of Health and State Education Department expectations for dental healthcare professionals.
