Expiration Date: 12/19/25
Credits: 1 CEU
High concentrations of bio-aerosols generated during dental procedures by various dynamic instruments commonly contaminated with bacteria, viruses, and often with blood may be hazardous to healthcare workers and patients. Use of lasers creates a plume containing various gaseous and toxic by-products, which may produce health risks to dental clinicians.
This CE webinar will review insufficient awareness of health risks, working and environmental habits for dental personnel, as well as the available and recommended methods of protection against the influence of bio-aerosol and plume.
• Identify behaviors to protect clinicians from the threat resulting from the influence of bio-aerosol and laser plume
• Discuss the value of appropriate PPE/mask selection to reduce potential exposure to contaminated aerosols and laser plume.
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
