Course Description: Dental Hygienists wear many hats: oral healthcare provider, educator, role model and cheerleader. Many also serve as the Infection Control Coordinator (ICC) for the dental practice. If you have this title, or just take infection control as seriously as you should, get ready for some big changes as we enter the new normal of COVID-19. Are you fully prepared to improve your office’s infection prevention program to meet the challenges of this pandemic and the next? Need some encouragement for when things aren’t 100% in compliance? Hang on, help is on the way! This training is designed to guide you through the obstacles you’ll face and show you a clear path to safe dentistry.
