Best Practices                  
Key Learnings as of December 2017

Dentists and staff members may need to act in a natural or man-made emergency in order to help safeguard themselves or their patients, and they must be prepared.

Before resuming care after a disaster, dental practitioners should be able to address Infection Prevention and Control as per normal practice conditions and in accordance with the CDC guidelines for infection control in dentistry.
