The Dental Council of NSW uses this Infection Control Checklist when conducting inspections of dental surgeries. The checklist was made available to the profession to facilitate transparency of the Council’s assessment and inspection processes.
The Dental Board of Australia has published Guidelines on infection control to detail the infection control obligations of dental practitioners. It is the responsibility of every registered dental practitioner to ensure they meet their infection control obligations.
The Dental Board of Australia also has a self-audit checklist to help practitioners assess their compliance with infection control obligations.
A full list of all Dental Board of Australia guidelines are available here. These are the key documents that a dental practitioner must abide with as well as the behaviours the Dental Board of Australia expects of dental practitioners.
