Description:
Infection prevention is essential for the health and safety of patients and dental health professionals. In order to prevent the transmission of microorganisms and disease requires breaking the chain of infection. This entails performing a series of repeatable and sequential steps for effective infection prevention. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendations on infection control for the dental setting include standard precautions that should be followed on a daily basis, and includes procedures to be performed at the beginning of the day, before and after treating each patient, and at the end of the day. In this course, Ms. Graham will provide the dental health care professional with an overview of current infection prevention protocols that are required to break the chain of infection and prevent disease transmission. This course satisfies the DANB infection control requirement.
