Safety Standards and Infection Control
for Dental Assistants
The text is separated into five major areas according to their relevance to the dental assistant's role in infectious disease prevention, and contains numerous hands-on procedures and assessment questions designed to help readers track their comprehension and retention of presented material. Infection Control for Dental Assistants will also be helpful as a refresher resource for dental assistants already in private practice and as a chairside reference.
Reflecting the requirements of the Dental Assisting National Board on Task Analysis, this guide to workplace safety and infection control is intended to help students prepare for the National Infection Control Examination. It covers: microbiology and disease prevention; national guidelines, recommendations, and regulations; infection control techniques in the dental office; environmental health and safety; and office communications concerning infection control. The dental assistant's role in infectious disease prevention is emphasized throughout. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
