"If Saliva Were Red" features an 8-minute video (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 teaching method uses a DVD with 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 teaching method also includes an 8-page companion bookHow to Tell the Story: A Trainer's Guide 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.

Learning Objectives:  After viewing this video and reviewing and discussing the contents of the companion book, participants should be able to:


1. List several common technique errors that can lead to cross contamination in a typical dental practice.  2. Describe potential solutions to address the technique errors listed.3. Identify appropriate personal protective equipment required for a procedure involving spray and/or spatter. 4. Describe when hand hygiene should be performed. 5. Explain how a combination of barriers, work practices and engineering controls can be used to reduce contamination.
