Preventing COVID-19 Transmission in Dentistry (even when there’s a vaccine)

The speaker, Luci Perri, will provide dental healthcare workers with information to implement recommended strategies aimed at preventing transmission of COVID-19 in dental healthcare settings. Participation in the interactive exercises requires access to PPE normally worn in the office, access to the surface disinfectants (wipes and sprays) used in the clinic, and a can of shaving cream. One can of shaving cream can be shared among people in the same office, if desired. Ample time will be available for questions. Although the course is free, there is an $11 charge to obtain the 2.0 AGD PACE contact hours.
