We’re working together with the College of Alberta Denturists, the College of Dental Technologists of Alberta, and the College of Registered Dental Hygienists of Alberta to create a common guidelines document for infection prevention and control (IPC).
By November 22, 2021, please review the draft document then provide your feedback by completing the survey. To help shape the guidelines, we’re inviting our stakeholders (Albertans, dental assistants and their employers, other healthcare professionals) to provide feedback. Your input is important to us!
The guidelines will play a key role in healthcare regulation and public protection. They will do this by setting the required professional expectations for all Alberta dental assistants, denturists, dental technologists and technicians, and dental hygienists, regardless of their role or practice setting. Practicing according to the guidelines will be integral to the safe delivery of quality and ethical oral care and services.
Each of our College’s Standards of Practice will support the use of this IPC resource. To provide clear guidance to the dental team, we have worked toward aligning the guidelines with the IPC standards of the College of Dental Surgeons of Alberta.
