Welcome to the Classroom
Review of CDC Infection Control Guidelines in the Dental Health Setting 
Presenter: Dr. Marie Fluent Release Date: 9/7/17
Credits: 1 CEU, Free Self-Study Expiration Date: 9/7/20
  Reviewed: 2019        

Fortunately, the transmission of infections in the dental setting is rare. Unfortunately, transmissions have occurred and the consequences severe. To prevent such incidents, dental personnel should have a fundamental understanding of the principles of infection prevention and be familiar with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) document Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings - 2003.

However, clinicians may wonder: Why is this document so important? Are these guidelines considered “recommendations” or “regulations and law?" This document may be difficult to read and understand - is there a simplified version available? And, have there been any important updates since 2003? This CE webinar will address these questions and introduce a recent “Cliffs Notes” version of the CDC Guidelines - Summary of Infection Prevention Practices in Dental Settings: Basic Expectations for Safe Care.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Discuss the significance and major components of the CDC Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings -2003
• Discuss the 2016 CDC Document: Summary of Infection Prevention Practices in Dental Settings: Basic Expectations for Safe Care
• Discuss the elements of Standard Precautions as the foundation for preventing transmission of infectious agents during patient care
• Identify relevant recommendations published by CDC since 2003
