In response to the global pandemic, dental healthcare personnel have stepped up their infection control efforts in the effort to reduce the spread of infection. One of the simplest action items – hand hygiene – is one of the most basic yet most effective strategies of infection prevention. By performing hand hygiene at the right time, with the right product and right technique, dental team members can protect themselves and their patients from deadly germs on hands and surfaces. This CE webinar will discuss hand hygiene in accordance with CDC Guidelines and OSHA Standards, product selection, and appropriate methods and motivation techniques to enhance compliance and ensure a safe dental visit for all.
