Cross Infection Control
Zoning

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 !

 Zoning is one of the fundamental Universal Precautions, but can be confusing. How do you establish a zone? When is the dirty zone the cleanest zone? Why might the clean zone be dirtier than the dirty zone?

This page takes you through all the places that form the dirty zone, and asks you how you would control cross infection for each of them. Model answers are given, allowing inexperienced members to learn and understand zoning, and experienced members can reassure themselves they are fully up to date.

Full of practical tips, it also lays out the rules for dealing with the dirty zone when the patient has left the surgery.
