Dugoni co-sponsoring national webinar for dental educators on infection prevention and CDC guidance for dental settings

Jun 8, 2020

University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is co-sponsoring a national webinar with the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) and the Organization for Safety Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) to help prepare dental educators nationwide about infection control protocols in the era of COVID-19.

Entitled “Interim Infection Prevention and CDC Guidance for Dental Settings,” the webinar will be 1-2 p.m. today, June 8, and is open to all ADEA members.  

The current pandemic has brought many changes and raised many questions about infection control in dental settings. The speakers will discuss some of the specific challenges dental schools face and how to carefully resume patient care and clinical education in the safest environment possible.  

One of the two presenters is Eve Cuny, BA, MS, director of environmental health and safety, assistant dean for global relations and associate professor at the Dugoni School of Dentistry. She is an internationally recognized expert in infection control in dentistry and has been a key person in the school’s pandemic response planning. The other expert presenter is Michele Neuburger, DDS, MPH, a Dental Officer in CDC’s Division of Oral Health (DOH), where she focuses on issues related to infection prevention and control and dental public health. 

The Dugoni School’s Continuing Dental Education department will be providing the platform and registration to make this event possible. One unit of CE credit will be offered. Registration details are available online >>
