If Saliva Were Red
If Saliva Were Red: A Visual Lesson on Infection Control



The DVD Video Training System

Named for Dr. James Crawford's landmark 1970s study that confirmed the presence of contamination in the dental operatory, the OSAP-produced video training system "If Saliva Were Red" features an 8-minute video (now on DVD) that uses real dental professionals to highlight:

  • common infection control and safety flaws,
  • the cross-contamination dental workers would see if saliva were red, and
  • how controlling contamination by using personal barrier protection, safe work practices, and effective infection control products, reduces the risk of exposure.

Produced without a voice track, the DVD uses visual rather than verbal cues to stress the need for procedure-specific infection control, making it a suitable training tool for classrooms and practices around the world, regardless of native language.

The Trainer's Guide

An 8-page companion booklet --How to Tell the Story: A Trainer's Guide-- complements the DVD, providing educators, consultants, and in-practice instructors with visual cues and talking points from the DVD, answers to common questions, a checklist of the elements of a comprehensive dental personnel training program, and lists of web resources. Original release date 2003. Re-released 2006, 2012 and 2013.
