September 24 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
Pricing: $50 – members and staff; $60 – non-members
This six-hour course combines information from CDC, OSAP and DBC to provide a relevant in depth and up-to-date examination of Infection Control guidelines and recommendations for implementing and maintaining an effective Infection Control Program to prevent the spread of disease in any healthcare facility. This seminar meets the CE requirements specific to Amended CCR section 1005, the Dental Board of California Infection Control Regulations.
Because of the hazards especially inherent in the practice of dentistry, Cal/OSHA has specific training requirements to protect DHCPs from the transmission of disease and other work-related hazards. Annual Cal/OSHA training is required for all dental back-office staff, because employees (licensed or unlicensed) in California have, “The Right to Know” and “The Right to Understand” hazards present in their workplace and be trained how to protect themselves and patients. The speaker is an approved Provider by the Dental Board of California.
