The 2012 edition of the ADA Guidelines for Infection
Control is the result of over 20 years of dedicated work by the
Australian Dental Association's Infection Control Committee, in
consultation with stakeholders. It describes the infection control
procedures and processes that dental care providers and dental staff are
expected to follow.
The recommendations provided are evidence-based or otherwise
based on current international best practice, and have been drawn from
current expert knowledge and advice in infection control.
The document provides guidance regarding the primary
responsibilities of dental practitioners in relation to infection
control, and the rationale for those obligations. It incorporates new
information drawn from major developments over the 2009 - 2011 period in
terms of national policies and the international literature.
