LEARNING
objectives

How can we make dental care safe for our patients, and not spread disease in the community? How can we be safe at work? What are things we could do better to prepare for future outbreaks?

As dental practices start to move gradually back towards normal operations, a key question is what lessons have we learned from this pandemic about every day infection control measures? How can we make dental care safe for our patients, and not spread disease in the community? How can we be safe at work? What are things we could do better to prepare for future outbreaks? During these turbulent times, dental professionals have many questions and concerns around these issues. Renowned infection control expert Prof Laurie Walsh A.O will lead a discussion about navigating the unchartered waters of dentistry on the downside of the COVID-19 pandemic, as we emerge into a new world. He will review the major issues for dental professionals around current guidelines on screening patients, use of PPE, and limitations on aerosol generation.
