Endorsed and delivered by the ADA, taking into account the COVID-19 context, this course is the premier source of contemporary infection prevention and control (IPC) information for the dental profession in 2021.
We know the dental profession trusts ADA NSW to distil vast amounts of dynamic information into sensible and manageable risk-based, outcomes-focused implementation strategies. Our goal is to support practice teams to streamline their infection control programmes as this can improve performance, efficiency and team confidence.
This course focuses on the key elements required to strategically manage infection risk in dental practices and how to empower teams with purpose-driven values to protect the public…and themselves. As the peak body for the profession, we use performance-based data to inform high impact and targeted education resources – this course is based on the top areas of opportunity identified in hundreds of dental practices and the practical, evidence-based, strategies to improve performance.
Almost 3000 people have attended this constantly evolving ADA course to reflect the dynamic landscape of IPC. 
This course is suitable for all registered dental practitioners, Australian Dental Council candidates, prosthetists, dental practice teams, industry and product representatives and consumer advocates.

If you’re booking an IPC course and need accommodation for your visit please email us for discounted accommodation rates.

We have many practice teams attending this course to streamline their infection control programs as a group.  If there isn’t a course date and location that suits your team please contact Practice Services (02) 8436 9927 to discuss the possibility of arranging a course at a location near you.
