Description

Infection Control in Dentistry – 8 Hours LIMITED TO 14 STUDENTS

It is mandatory for dentists to provide training in infection control for all unlicensed dental assistants. This course is designed to train dental assistants in the latest OSHA and CDC concepts of infection control. Modes of disease transmission and prevention of HBV and HIV are covered. Sterilization and surface disinfection are a primary focus. Chemical hazards in dentistry are identified and safe handling reviewed. This 8-hour course is offered on an as- needed basis. This is a one-day, 8-hour course designed to satisfy requirements articulated in the California Code of Regulations 1005 – Dental Board of California Infection Control Regulations.

The following Business and Professions Code Sections require certain individuals to complete a Board-approved course in infection control (among other requirements):

1. 1750: The employer of a dental assistant shall be responsible for ensuring that a dental assistant who has been in continuous employment for 120 days or more has already successfully completed, or successfully completes, a board-approved course in infection control within a year of the date of employment.
