Dr. Joseph will discuss many dental infection control issues in which there is no consensus opionion, nor a consistent manner in which basic IC issues are practiced. Some of the more controversial issues include sterilization of evacuation instruments and burs, how often should waterline testing be performed, what temperature and humidity ranges should dental instruments be stored, and what is the best method to control possible cross contamination when using lasers. Other basic issues such as how to properly set up an operatory, and how to don and remove PPE are also not practiced uniformly from one clinic to the next. These conundrums can make it challenging when trying to develop a policy that is best suited to one's dental clinic. The rationale on how to handle these issues in the most cost effective and safe manner will be discussed.
