Compliance with industry-standard infection control guidelines is good for patients, employees, and practices. NC Infection Control Curriculum for Dental Settings is offered in two three-hour sessions, one week apart. These sessions offer the opportunity to ask questions and still meet all infection control training requirements. One of the risks in any procedure is the transmission of disease or infection. This employee training webinar will give you the tools you need to ensure that your patients receive the excellent care that is the cornerstone of your practice.
Practical solutions to your infection control challenges will be provided as basic principles of epidemiology, disinfection, sterilization, and techniques to reduce the spread of infection are reviewed. In addition, discussion of CDC guidelines will be an important part of this employee training presentation, thus positioning your practice to provide a safe work environment for both patients and employees.*
