 OSAP 2017 Annual Conference - The Safest Dental Visit™ Make It Happen!

TITLE    Skill Builder - Microbiology 201



Infections caused by waterborne microorganisms are among the most harmful to global health. These include a variety of bacteria, protozoa, and viruses which are able to proliferate in many natural water sources, as well as man-made systems designed to provide potable water for the public and water used in patient treatment. Comprehensive infection prevention recommendations now address the potential for colonization and contamination of dental treatment water. This course will provide an initial overview of the epidemiology and principles associated with waterborne infections, followed by discussion of representative, clinically important pathogens and the challenges they present. A must-attend, this course will equip infection preventionists with the microbiology concepts needed to advance dental safety with special focus on waterborne organisms including Legionella pneumoplila and Mycobacterium abscessus.




 John Molinari, PhD

  • Comprehend the historical and current challenges waterborne infections present.

  • Understand their unique colonization and pathogenic properties promote cross-contamination and infection in susceptible hosts.

  • Describe infectious disease characteristics of specific waterborne pathogens that challenge our health care infection control procedures.
