Bloodborne Pathogens and Infectious Disease
Students in the dental hygiene program, in the course of their clinical duties have exposure
to blood, tissue, secretions or body fluids of patients potentially containing infectious
diseases. Unintentional punctures of the skin with a contaminated instrument could occur
despite all precautions and could pose an increased risk to disease for the student. Policies
have been developed to reduce risks in accordance with occupational risk abatement
procedures. Training in blood-borne pathogens and communicable diseases is given at the
onset of pre-clinical study.
