Are Your Vaccinations Up-to Date? A Discussion Of Vaccination Recommendations For Dental Professionals And Their Patients

Christine Macarelli RDH, MS, Susan Davide Associate Professor/RDH, MS, MSEd, Anty Lam Professor RDH MPH

One of the most significant public health interventions, vaccination is an essential component of public health programs and among our most cost-effective medical interventions. Oral health care professionals are directly and indirectly involved in patient care and can be exposed to infectious agents that can be transmitted to and from clinicians and patients. In Part 1 of this series, we will discuss infectious diseases, outbreaks, and novel diseases. In Part 2 we will discuss the importance of oral health care providers receiving and maintaining vaccinations to protect against exposure to infectious agents, and educating patients about this effective disease prevention modality.

The Participant will be able to:

  • Identify the vaccination recommendations and mandates for health care professionals
  • Recognize the significance of current recommendations for compliance in the clinical setting
  • Discuss the ongoing role of ensuring the dental team is appropriately vaccinated
  • Identify and provide appropriate resources on vaccinations to patients and team members
