Course Description

This course meets and exceeds the minimum requirements for an OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard Annual Review and for an Infection Control course in the clinical dental setting for all US state dental boards. Many state dental licensing boards require that licensed and non-licensed dental professionals meet the minimum requirements of their individual state's laws and regulations in infection control. You are responsible for knowing your state’s requirements for licensing. The purpose of this course is to protect the safety of the general public and the dental clinician. This course on bloodborne pathogens, with an OSHA perspective, provides employers a recognized standard of information for their employees.
