DAI infection Control

As a CDA I believe dental assistants should have infection control training. Without this proper training we leave room for cross contamination this is even more important with COVID-19 and many other viruses. Operatories need to be properly cleaned before the next patient arrives as well as the instruments and waterlines being properly maintained and cleaned. We are putting our community and families more at risk by not having dental assistants trained in infection control.
