Course Description:

Meeting the infection control needs of every dental practice should not be an overwhelming process.  An understanding of the applicable laws, prevention techniques and a common-sense approach can produce a simple effective, ongoing program that protects patient and providers alike.  A review of current research will provide a scientific basis for infection control policies.  Understanding the required protocols and procedures that would be evaluated during a compliance inspection will be included.  The course is designed to help satisfy the annual training requirement for MOSH compliance as well as provide infection control continuing education credits required for Maryland dental renewal of license.

Her interactive and entertaining courses employ a practical approach to enable health professionals to survive the changing array of communicable disease laws and work safely in today’s dental office.
