As a patient, I trust that the dental office where I receive care is maintained in a clean and safe manner. It is shocking to me that there is discussion against training Dental Assistants in the basic principles of Infection Prevention and Control.
I support and encourage the Board of Dentistry to require training in Infection Prevention and Control for Dental Assistant I.
Successful completion of a CE course in Infection Prevention and Control offered by the sponsors recognized by the BOD would provide a MINIMAL standard for these important clinical team members to uphold so that they can help protect both dental patients AND dental team members.
