Dentists have always followed strict infection prevention & control (IPAC) standards. Their priority is to protect everyone in the office from the spread of bacteria & illness.

Dentists must follow the IPAC standards of the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO). The RCDSO is only one part of a larger system in Ontario that provides guidance to dentists on IPAC standards. Other key bodies include the Ontario Ministry of Health, Public Health Ontario & local Public Health Units.

These standards cover areas including:

  • Screening of patients
  • Hand hygiene
  • Sterilization, handling, & storage of equipment & materials
  • Disposal of items such as gloves & syringes
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Education & training

These protocols are now stronger than ever because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dentists have extra levels of protection in place to create a safe care environment.

Dentists & their teams get the most current evidence-based information on IPAC techniques. They pursue continuing education activities as part of their commitment to lifelong learning. If you have questions about health & safety in the dental office, ask your dentist. They want to make you feel more comfortable & secure about your dental visit.
