I recently completed the Dental Board’s required Dental Practice Act and Infection Control Regulations seminars. Both deal with the health and safety of patients within the dental office from sterilization procedures to dental ethics. Dental professionals are required to have completed both these courses every 2 years to renew their dental licenses. But I feel that this is such an important aspect of a dental practice as it directly impacts you as patients, that I hire a nationally known educator and field inspector to train my dental team and inspect our office not every 2 years, but annually as an in-office meeting. That way we learn as a team about any updates to regulations so that we can effectively implement them for your benefit.
