Course Goals and Objectives:

NYS law requires that all healthcare professionals including dentists and hygienists receive training in infection control and barrier precautions every four years. Dental care involves exposure to blood and airborne pathogens such as HIV, TB, HBV, etc. The unique nature of most dental procedures, instrumentation and patient care settings also requires the specific strategy directed to the prevention of transmission of pathogens among dental healthcare personnel and their patients. Universally applied infection control practices reduce the risk of disease transmission from doctor/staff to patient, patient to doctor/staff, and patient-to-patient. These strategies/practices are recommended in addition to following OSHA guidelines. These will be discussed in depth. 

Course Goals: 

  • *Provide information about dental infection control principles and practices
  • *Emphasize the importance of written policies and procedures and ongoing education and training of dental health care personnel
