Description

To prevent the transmission of microorganisms and disease, a robust infection control program is required. The guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control provide recommendations for infection control in the dental healthcare settings, and in order to break the chain of infection and prevent disease transmission attention to every detail of infection control procedures is required. Steps include those required at the beginning and end of the day, and repeated procedures that are performed for each and every patient. CDC guidelines, OSHA and EPA regulations must be followed and appropriate FDA-cleared supplies used for infection control.

1.Describe the chain of infection and modes of transmission

2.List the elements involved in the daily infection prevention cycle
