Infection control has been under the spotlight over the last few years. With so many options for keeping ourselves and our patients safe, it is easy to become confused about best practices. This course will take our understanding of infection control back to the foundational level of the microbe and how it can wreak havoc in our dental world. The science of microbial lifecycle, replication and infection will be reviewed. Attendees will build a fundamental understanding of risk, as well as best practices and solutions to maintaining an ideal clinical environment.
