Creating a culture of safety in dental practice settings
from Dental Economics
Historically, dentistry in the U.S. has not been associated with high numbers of healthcare-acquired infections — that’s the good news. The not-so-good news is that recently there have been a number of well-publicized breaches of infection prevention protocols. Some of those breaches led to HIAs, several involving serious consequences and even the death of a patient in the U.S. as a result of an infection acquired during dental treatment.
