The Safest Dental Visit™ is a multi-faceted program designed to support an increased commitment to infection control and safety in dentistry. Clinicians, manufacturers, distributors and infection control specialists are working together for patient safety.



Dental Offices

The pivotal point for this program is the dental office. The office is where patients express concern (or remain silent but worry) about the office’s infection control practices. The goal of the Safest Dental Visit is to promote the highest levels of infection control and ensure that patients are made aware of the practice’s commitment to these practices. 

Infection Control Speakers, Consultants, and Educators

These opinion leaders often are the ones who introduce students to the importance of infection control, teach practices how to improve compliance and safety, and show how to properly use infection control products.



Dental Product Distributors

Distributors reach dental practitioners through personal visits, catalogs, conventions, advertising, and online media. Clinicians often look to their dealer representatives for advice and guidance on product selection and use. 

Dental Product Manufacturers

Manufacturers have a vested interest in increasing and improving the proper use of their products and the prevention of disease transmission in the dental office. 


Informed consumers are able to better control the quality of the healthcare they receive. The Safest Dental Visit program helps patients better understand what dental providers are doing to ensure their safety.
