Infectious diseases have become more of an interest in the dental laboratory since more advances in infection control have emerged. This presentation is geared to inform the practitioner of some of the infectious risks that the dental technician may be exposed to and how to go about preventing and disinfecting all work coming into the laboratory. Which products to use and which techniques yield best results. 1 hour of continuing education credits will be supplied at the end of the presentation.
