As states have begun lifting stay-at-home orders, many dental practices have started seeing patients for non-emergency care for the first time in weeks. To ensure the safety of patients and staff, it is important to prepare and equip your office to maximize infection prevention efforts.
The Organization for Safety Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) and Patterson Dental have come together for an informative on-demand webinar titled “Respiratory Precautions and Aerosol Management for Dentistry.”
This on-demand webinar features OSAP’s Kathy Eklund, RDH, MHP, and Eve Cuny who share their expertise on current respiratory precautions and Patterson’s Jerri Weiss and Mark Plancon who discuss dental aerosol management solutions from an equipment and technology standpoint.
Managing respiratory risk is critical as dental practices begin resuming regular care amid COVID-19. Eklund and Cuny share practical tips for developing an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-required respiratory protection program, including fit-testing, medical evaluation and training. Then Patterson’s Weiss and Plancon explore equipment such as extraoral suction, air purifiers and lasers designed to cut down on and create fewer aerosols in the dental office setting.
