Do's and don'ts for infection control

By Roger P. Levin, DDS

August 24, 2020 -- Dental practices have always had strict infection control protocols. However, in these times, the stakes have never been higher. Patients want and expect that you're providing the highest levels of safety. Practices must stay aware of all the latest rules, regulations, and resources.


Keep abreast of new research regarding infection control. The wide variety of infection control recommendations out there right now is more chaotic than organized. You must work to gradually shore up your practice with the most efficient infection control processes available in the shortest amount of time.


Don't let infection control overwhelm your thinking. You must view infection control as merely another system in the practice that should be organized step by step and followed every time. That is all there is to it.
