20DE002 - Dental Infection Control - Procedures Refresher for the CDA (On-site at MAHEC or via Videoconference)


Controlling the spread of infectious disease is sometimes as simple as washing your hands, but often requires specialized techniques and procedures. This 2-hour lecture course prepares you to take on infection control in your office in a systematic way and will serve as a refresher for some members of the dental healthcare team.

*Note: While open to all team members, this course is tailored to meet the new infection control credits required of CDAs by DANB: As of Jan 1, 2016, all CDAs, whether they hold one or more DANB certifications, must earn a minimum of two Continuing Dental Education (CDE) credits in infection control topics annually. These two CDE credits are in addition to any federally mandated OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard training.


MAHEC has the ability to provide a videoconference of this event to other satellite locations in the MAHEC region. Please contact the planner of the course to arrange a videoconference, at the following email: rosalyn.wasserman@mahec.net
