Different guidelines exist for the management of hepatitis B virus (HBV)-infected healthcare workers (HCWs). Various HBV DNA levels are used as a cutoff level to determine whether an HBV-infected healthcare worker is allowed to perform exposure-prone procedures (EPPs) or not. 

OSAP member and Arthur A. Dugoni Pacific School of Dentistry faculty member, Eve Cuny MS, has done extensive research on this topic. The Board of OSAP thanks Ms. Cuny for her generosity in sharing articles, a sample policy and a copy of a presentation she made on this topic at the 2009 OSAP Annual Symposium.
