Cross Infection Control
PPE and HTM0105

Dentaljuce’s excellent module on Cross Infection Control in Dentistry is written in straightforward language for the whole dental team, and covers all you could want to know about this increasingly important core verifiable CPD topic for dentists and dental nurses. If you haven’t subscribed to dentaljuce yet, why not join us now at this amazingly low price !

 The UK Department of Health published guidance on dental cross-infection control in a book called "Decontamination Health Technical Memorandum 01-05: Decontamination in primary care dental practices."

With a large section on the Personal Protective Equipment that must be used by people who clean and disinfect dirty and infected dental instruments, UK practices are expected to follow this guidance.

The juce on this page takes you through the PPE rules in a way that makes you think about it before seeing the answer. You will quickly realise that you can actually work out most of it for yourself without having to learn long lists of rules.
