Disinfection and decontamination

Nicky Benbow is lecturing on disinfection and decontamination in dental practices from 12:15-13:15 on Wednesday 15 April.

She will touch on the general guidelines of disinfection and decontamination in the dental practice. Nicky will then give explanations of why and how we decontaminate and the roles and responsibilities of the team. She will also identify the layout of the decontamination room and specify the stages of the decontamination cycle.

Following the lecture dental teams will have the ability to recognise dental decontamination and understand why we decontaminate. They will be able to identify the different roles and responsibilities in dental decontamination. And they will also have the ability to explain the layout of the decontamination room and the decontamination cycle.
