COURSE SUMMARY: The practice of dentistry is primarily procedural and opportunities exist throughout the day for cross contamination.  Surface decontamination is essential to disrupting the Chain of Infection by deploying standard precautions. Contaminated environmental and clinical contact and housekeeping surfaces are a reservoir of infectious material with the potential to transmit infection to health-care personnel and patients. Transmission of pathogens can occur by direct or indirect contact of clinical contact surfaces and the hands of health-care personnel. Effective surface decontamination in dental settings is imperative to protect dental health care personnel and patients.
