SAFEST DENTAL VISIT FOR DENTAL PRACTICES

OVERVIEW | PLEDGE | TOOLKIT 


Overview                                              

The Safest Dental Visit is a multi-year campaign designed to promote the

 

 

dental practice's commitment to infection control and safety. Clinicians,
educators, speakers & consultants, product manufacturers and distributors and
others interested in patient safety are collaborating to help ensure that every
patient visit is the safest dental visit.

The dental team plays a pivotal role in the campaign. The dental office is
where clinicians address new and emerging threats and increasingly complex
policies and guidelines. It's also where patients express concern (or remain silent
but worry).

Dental practices can participate in the campaign to help educate and train
staff, promote a safe and professional environment, increase patient confidence
and loyalty, attract new patients and enhance the overall image of the practice.

The Pledge                  

The Safest Dental Visit pledge outlines critical guidelines and practices to
help ensure
the safety of every patient. The campaign supports dental practices
who make this pledge by providing information, education, and regular reminders
to engage staff in infection prevention and safety. The collective commitment of
the dental team is then demonstrated to patients with The Safest Dental
Visit Pledge.
