Helping Dental practitioners with infection prevention and control

The Dental Board of Australia wants to make it easier for practitioners to know and understand the professional expectations around infection prevention and control to help them practice safely.

As part of this, the Board is reviewing its Guidelines on infection control. The Board is consulting on whether to shift the information contained in the guidelines to more accessible and helpful tools and resources, such as a one-stop fact sheet and a self-reflective tool. The Board invites you to have your say by 15 November 2021.

To read about the Board’s proposal, review the consultation paper and access supporting documents, please see the Dental Board’s consultation page (https://www.dentalboard.gov.au/News/Current-Consultations.aspx). You can make your submission using an online submissions form. The consultation is open until 15 November 2021.

The Board is holding an online public briefing session on 22 September 2021, at 12.30pm. The webinar will also be recorded and published to the Board’s consultation webpage.
