January 19, 2017 -- The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a new app to help dental facilities stay compliant with infection-prevention practices.

The CDC DentalCheck app can be used for the following purposes:

  • To make sure the dental setting has appropriate infection-prevention policies and practices in place, including training and supplies
  • To assess compliance of personnel with infection-prevention practice
  • To provide feedback regarding infection-prevention performance

Users can navigate to key references and resources for each area of focus within the app, including sterilization, safe injection practices, and hand hygiene.

The app is available on the iTunes store.
