The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is proud to be the co-sponsor of a national webinar with the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) and the Organization for Safety Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) to help prepare dental educators nationwide about infection control protocols in the era of COVID-19. Entitled “Interim Infection Prevention and CDC Guidance for Dental Settings,” the webinar was held on Monday, June 8 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm and was open to all ADEA members.
The current pandemic has brought many changes and raised many questions about infection control in dental settings. The speakers discussed some of the specific challenges dental schools face and how to carefully resume patient care and clinical education in the safest environment possible.
One of the two presenters is Eve Cuny, BA, MS, director of environmental health and safety, assistant dean for global relations and associate professor at the Dugoni School of Dentistry. She is an internationally recognized expert in infection control in dentistry and has been a key person in the school’s pandemic response planning. The other expert presenter is Michele Neuburger, DDS, MPH, a Dental Officer in CDC’s Division of Oral Health (DOH), where she focuses on issues related to infection prevention and control and dental public health.
The Dugoni School’s Continuing Dental Education department provided the platform and registration to make this event possible. One unit of CE credit was offered.
