Infection Control for Dentists Level 2 (VTQ)
About the Course
You know your patient's health is important to you; you and your staff are committed to providing the safest environment possible for your patients. Health and safety are always top priorities in any workplace, but when it comes to dentistry, those standards are heightened even further. Keeping your patient's health at the forefront of your mind is a priority for anyone in the dental industry. The safety of your patients is of utmost importance, and that's why we've developed Infection Control for Dentists.
Infection control is important in dentistry for a few reasons. First, dental patients are at risk of getting infections from other people, even if they haven't had any dental work done. This can happen when someone infected comes into contact with saliva or mucus from a toothache patient, for example. Second, you and your staff risk contracting infections during your workday. Third, bacteria can spread throughout a dental office if proper infection control measures aren't in place. By following guidelines for infection control and Coronavirus protocol of the Public Health department, you and your staff can stay safe while providing quality care.
That's why we've developed Infection Control for Dentists, a course that covers everything you need to know about preventing the spread of bloodborne pathogens in your office. From properly sterilising equipment to understanding how dental assistants can help, this comprehensive course will give you the tools you need to protect your patients and maintain a safe environment for all staff members.
