In this clip from the latest episode of In the Sterilization Room with Jackie, infection prevention expert Jackie Dorst, RDH, BS, talks about why the orthodontic team needs to take the new free online CE training course on infection prevention and control in the dental setting offered by the CDC. As Jackie puts it, “This is an educational resource that the dental profession has needed.”
This course, “Foundations: Building the Safest Dental Visit,” is focused on basic infection control—everything from how to disinfect surfaces and basic hand hygiene to how to sterilize handpieces and monitoring your sterilizer.
This course is ideal for both new team members who need orientation and registered orthodontic and dental assistants who need CE credits towards their license renewal. Jackie adds, this course is much more user friendly than previous course offered by the CDC. OP
