Infection Prevention & Safety Resources

Every dental practice needs an Infection Control Coordinator (ICC) with overall responsibility for managing and coordinating the Infection Prevention and Control Program. ADS has bundled together FREE resources that describe the responsibilities and how to staff and support this important position. We've also included additional resources, tools, and checklists based on the weekly #DICAM24 topics.
