Infection Control Part 2: Questions & Answers About COVID-19

This webinar will provide an update to our first Infection Control webinar through a fireside chat to answer questions on COVID-19. The learning objectives include understanding the current ADA and CDC dental guidelines on infection control and identifying current best practices for PPE & disinfection for dental treatment for the short and long term.

Saliva & Covid-19 Testing in Clinical Dental Practice

Oral healthcare professionals work with saliva in daily practice so understanding the risks of exposure to contaminated saliva and aerosols during the dental care is critical.  Therefore, oral healthcare professionals have to be well-positioned to work with saliva while understanding if routine testing for COVID-19 would help the clinicians to lower the risk.

Best Practices for Infection Control in Dental Clinics

This is a joint webinar from the DentaQuest Partnership and the Organization for Safety Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP), focusing on the guidance provided by the ADA, OSHA, the CDC and other dental associations to re-open dental practices. This webinar will discuss the tool that is helping dental professionals with successful re-opening implementation.
