It is expected that dental care is provided in a safe environment both for patients and clinical staff.  This presentation will highlight seven aspects of infection control and prevention where procedures frequently go wrong.  The material will cover important processes related to waterlines, inoculation injuries, immunisation, decontamination, instrument storage, waste and infection control audit.  The importance of appropriate use of antimicrobial agents in dentistry is being increasingly recognised and updated prescribing guidelines will be presented. Finally, it is now expected that all clinicians should be able to recognise sepsis in a patient and therefore the clinical symptoms of this life-threatening condition will be presented.

Learning objectives

Following the presentation delegates will:

  • Have knowledge of the contemporary standards for infection prevention and control
  • Understand the range of processes required for the safe delivery of dental care
  • Have knowledge of appropriate antimicrobial prescribing
