Infection control is a constitutional part of patient care system.
Focus on infection control in recent years began, with the occurrence of Hepatitis B, HIV and other infections. Although screening is possible in some instances, it is of little real value since the majority of individuals with communicable viral particles are asymptomatic and hence not identifiable. It is necessary to ensure cross infection control as a part of everyday dental care practice for safety.
Infection Control prevents the spread of infectious disease to you and your patients. It is therefore necessary for the practitioners to learn the basics of the infectious diseases and the way in which they can spread in the dental practice.
