May 27 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm$49 - $99
****Please note that this live event has been postponed until further notice****
3 CE Credits
The purpose of this program is to educate and inform dentists and their team of the current IPAC standards and practice guidelines using a practical rather than a theoretical perspective. In addition, it is designed to reduce the fear and stress level associated with infection prevention and control.
The RCDSO regulation requirements for Dentistry are extensive, comprehensive and have caused dental practitioners concern and apprehension around compliance with the regulations.
The panel will provide an interactive presentation to help dentists and their team better understand what changes need to take place in their offices so that every activity complies with IPAC standards through implementation of best practices.
This informative presentation is given by an expert panel consisting of an established and respected community dentist; a published, experienced epidemiologist and infection control specialist; an industry equipment and technology consultant and a practicing dental assistant.
1. Interpret IPAC standards from an implementation perspective.
2. Learn how to improve and monitor compliance among staff.
3. Emphasize key parameters to make IPAC a top priority.
