Aseptic technique is the method used to prevent cross-contamination and the transmission of pathogens. The use of aseptic technique during dental surgical procedures, and particularly dental implant surgery, in the dental-office-based practice setting, is a critical component of pathogen control, a successful surgical outcome, and the health and safety of the patient and the dental team.
While each practice has their own method of achieving asepsis, this course will explore a commonly recognised team-led approach, providing you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to standardise your surgical aseptic technique and ensure patient and staff safety.
