Basic Expectations for Safe Care Training Modules

Basic Expectations for Safe Care Training Modules

Infection Prevention & Control in Dental Settings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention):

"This training series covers the basic principles of infection prevention and control that form the basis for CDC recommendations for dental health care settings. It complements CDC’s Summary of Infection Prevention Practices in Dental Settings: Basic Expectations for Safe Care, and was developed to increase adherence to established infection prevention practices.

The slide series is divided into 10 modules including an introduction, seven elements of standard precautions, as well as dental unit water quality and program evaluation. Each module includes a slide set and speaker notes that can be used to educate and train infection prevention coordinators, educators, consultants, and other dental health care personnel."

 

Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings (2003)

Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings — 2003

Published originally as Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report - Recommendations and Reports, December 19, 2003. Vol. 52 / No. RR-17. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that "remains the standard of practice".

"This report consolidates previous recommendations and adds new ones for infection control in dental settings. Recommendations
are provided regarding 1) educating and protecting dental health-care personnel; 2) preventing transmission of bloodborne pathogens;
3) hand hygiene; 4) personal protective equipment; 5) contact dermatitis and latex hypersensitivity; 6) sterilization and
disinfection of patient-care items; 7) environmental infection control; 8) dental unit waterlines, biofilm, and water quality; and
9) special considerations (e.g., dental handpieces and other devices, radiology, parenteral medications, oral surgical procedures, and
dental laboratories). These recommendations were developed in collaboration with and after review by authorities on infection
control from CDC and other public agencies, academia, and private and professional organizations."

2016 Summary of Infection Prevention Practices in Dental Settings: Basic Expectations for Safe Care

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

"This document is a summary guide of basic infection prevention recommendations for all dental health care settings. These include traditional settings such as private dental practices, dental clinics, dental schools and educational programs (including dental assisting, dental hygiene, and laboratory) and nontraditional settings that often use portable dental equipment such as clinics held in schools for sealant and fluoride placement and in other sites for humanitarian dental missions.


While the information included in this document reflects existing evidence-based guidelines produced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is not intended as a replacement for more extensive guidelines. This summary guide is based primarily upon elements of Standard Precautions and represents a summary of basic infection prevention expectations for safe care in dental settings as recommended in the Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings — 2003. Readers are urged to use the Infection Prevention Checklist for Dental Settings (Appendix A), a companion to the summary; and to consult the full guidelines for additional background, rationale, and scientific evidence behind each recommendation."
