of the course to attend part 2

After taking this live interactive course the attendee will be able to: 
· Identify areas to “break” the chain of infection and its impact in the dental environment
· Recognize COVID 19’s impact in the dental environment
· Implement and evaluate workplace application of infection control in the dental settings  including personal protective equipment, protocols and procedures

Over the years, many diseases have captured headlines and made us all aware of our susceptibility. As diseases emerge into the spotlight, many concepts in prevention can finally be grasped and the importance of standard precautions in the dental setting brought to the forefront in health care and the public sector. During the first course we reviewed emerging diseases, the chain of infection and disease preventive measures. The 2nd part of the course we will review current findings, dispel myths in relation to COVID 19 and help you prepare to develop protocols and procedures for to keep dental professionals, patients and community safe. Please send your questions in advance to N.kelsch@sbcglobal.net so we can cover the topics you are needing. Put the subject line on the email covid19 question.
