Title: Health, Safety and Infection control in dental laboratory
Biography: Dharmasindhu Rai
Health, safety and infection control in dental laboratory is often an overlooked area and yet an important aspect for any dental practice. The use of appropriate infection control precautions is important for the dental technicians, as it is for the dental team. Improper handling of contaminated items, such as impressions, casts and other prosthetic appliances can result in cross contamination and possible cross infection to personnel and patients. A work environment which is safe to health is equally important for the dental technicians to produce quality work. This presentation will address all these issues along with our experience in implementing these changes towards JCI accreditation at Jerudong Park Medical Centre Dental Laboratory in Brunei Darussalam.
