Specific infection-control guidelines for dentistry have been continually updated since 1978, when the ADA initially published recommendations for preventing hepatitis B virus (HBV) transmission in the dental practice. Since that time, the ADA and CDC have worked together to revise and release updated versions based on ongoing advances in science and technology. The most recent, comprehensive document, published by the CDC in 2003, addressed one of the major infection-control areas known as instrument processing of patient-care items between treatment procedures.
