All dentists and hygienists in CT are required to have a one hour course on Infection Control every license monitoring period.  The Federal Government requires an annual course for compliance. Certified dental assistants are required to take infection control every two years to comply with CT DPH regulations. This course complies with CT law.

Occupational Health and Safety training is mandatory for all employees working in healthcare settings. This presentation promotes insight for employees to understand potential risk and develop safety strategies essential to comply with OSHA and CDC guidelines.

There will be a discussion on the latest policies for record keeping and chemical safety. A description on what should be included in your office exposure control and post exposure plans will be included. Several new products will be introduced that assist with optimal infection control procedures as well as promote an eco-friendly environment.

Participants will:
  • Distinguish areas of potential injury in the workplace.Develop strategies to reduce the risk of injury and disease transmission according to OSHA and CDC guidelines.
  • Design and implement policies required for Exposure and Post Exposure Control Plans for their practice.
  • Review hazmat guidelines and how to implement them in a dental practice.
