Infection Control Procedures and Protocols for Dentists

What infection control procedures and precautions should dentists follow during the COVID-19 crisis?

Following recommendations to postpone non-urgent care, and learning how to best work during PPE shortages, are some of the critical steps dentists should take. American infection control expert Eve Cuny explains the infection control protocols and procedures dentists should follow.

Although it has an American slant regarding their health organisations, the advice is international. This video was created on 20/3/2020.

As a dental team member, of course you want to avoid being infected if possible. However, the rate of infection among health-care workers is much higher than the general population (who come into contact with fewer people due to government isolation directives).

If you have an option on whether to help by continuing working, you need to assess your personal risk. If you are young and fit, you may choose to continue working, and vice versa. However, with an increased risk of getting infected yourself, you must also consider the risk to the relatives you are in contact with in your household (regarding their age and current medical condition).
