We are winning the battle against cancer, which means that more people are living longer . . . and will need the help of their dentist! With increasing frequency, every dental practice will see patients undergoing cancer treatment and who are at risk of the side effects and sequelae of their care. In 2018, The Ohio State University College of Dentistry launched the Dental Oncology Clinic, geared to providing comprehensive care for cancer patients. The goal is to minimize the risks of dental care for patients undergoing cancer treatment, provide information and education for patients, their families and healthcare providers, and to enhance the quality of life for cancer patients. This course presents a compilation of the experience gained by that clinic, which will provide tools that the attendee can use immediately in the care of their patients.

Subject Area: Infection Control

Denise Kissell, BSDH, EFDA, MPH

Course Format: Electronic document (PDF)
CE Credits: 2.0

Infection control and prevention is an important focus of everyday patient care in the practice of dentistry. Unfortunately, many oral health care professionals do not closely adhere to the many protocols and guidelines that the CDC and individual states have established. Encountering patients with a known infection, or a situation where there is a lapse in sterilization, reminds of us of the importance of keeping patients and providers safe. At this moment, infection control and prevention is at the forefront of minds both within and outside of healthcare as COVID 19 has thrust this important topic into the spotlight. With this course, we will look at common infectious agents that we may encounter in dentistry as well as review the CDC guidelines and State of Ohio Dental Board protocols to avoid disease transmission.
