Never carry contaminated sharp instruments by hand. Use a treatment tray or cassette to transport instruments from the treatment room to the central sterilization area. Dental workers are often in a hurry to prepare the treatment room for the next patient and because of this, many sharps injuries occur while instruments are being transported.

A current CPR card is a requirement for Dental License renewal. Did you know that in California you can apply up to four hours of the time spent in a CPR class toward your dental license renewal? Every two years dental licenses must be renewed. Dentists are required to accumulate 50 hours of continuing education. Dental Hygienists, Registered Dental Assistants, and holders of the dental sedation or orthodontic assistant permits must accumulate 25 hours. Registered Dental Hygienists in Alternative Practice must accumulate 35 hours.
You can get a CPR card from a number of different providers, but remember the CPR course must be live (online courses are not accepted) and the training must be either American Heart Association or Red Cross approved courses.
