There are many questions about what the delivery of oral health care will look like in the future. Will infection prevention protocols change? If so, how? Will the changes be permanent or short term? This CE webinar will examine the infection prevention strategies that are unique to dental hygiene procedures, including aerosols produced by mechanical scalers, slow speed handpiece asepsis, preventing cross contamination during periodontal charting and more.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, participants will be able to:
• Identify CDC guidelines and OSHA standards that apply to personal protective equipment required during dental hygiene procedures
• Determine the appropriate procedures for reprocessing handpieces and other equipment attached to the dental unit air and water lines
• Assess the risk of exposure to aerosols produced during dental hygiene procedures
• Implement protocols for reducing cross-contamination during periodontal charting and other documentation tasks   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
