Course Description:

Electronically mediated learning. With Covid-19 our world has been turned upside down. We continue to fear what we don’t know. But we can and need to continue to provide care for our patients and staff. Practical infection control in dentistry is a multi-faceted process. Protocols should be updated to include good: identification of high-risk patient populations, barrier technique, aseptic technique, surface disinfection, instrument sterilization, and equipment disinfection and sterilization. Additionally, we need to understand the proper use of antibiotics in dentistry.

Objectives:

  • Explain the changes that COVID -19 had on our lives.
  • Describe the recommendations for prophylactic antibiotics for cardiac and orthopedic patients.
