Does Your IPAC Manual Meet the New Standards?
The CoV-2 pandemic has brought about many changes in dentistry that will stay with us for years to come. Now more than ever, dental offices must ensure their written policies and procedures are in place and include a pandemic section titled Additional Precautions. In addition to the IPAC audits still being conducted by public health units, the Ministry of Labour has introduced a new audit process and will be conducting random visits to examine the existence and execution of these additional precautions in dental offices.
