Summary

Infection Prevention and Control Canada (IPAC Canada) states “Adherence to hand hygiene and medical equipment cleaning and disinfection/sterilization procedures are examples of practices that may result in infection if best practices are not followed.”

Some public health departments have recently been scrutinizing all aspects of reprocessing in dental and dental hygiene offices. It’s your professional responsibility to meet infection control standards, which reduce the risk for bacterial and viral infections, at all times. This session will explore best practices in instrument reprocessing routines and meeting infection control standards, as suggested by Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA).
