According to California Dental Practice Act Business and Professions Code, Article 7, Section 1750 (c), the supervising licensed dentist will be responsible for ensuring that each unlicensed dental assistant, who is in his or her continuous employ for 120 days or more, has successfully completed board approved courses in Dental Practice Act, basic life support and an eight hour course in infection control within one year.

The 8 hour Infection Control course is divided into two modules, 4 hours of Didactic and 4 hours of Clinical. The Didactic portion of the course (4 hours) may be taken as home study, and must be completed prior to on-site training. The clinical portion of the course (4 hours) must be presented live, hands-on in a clinical setting, and for your convenience, Leslie will conduct the clinical portion of the course in your office.

  • 4 hour Didactic home study module
  • 4 hour Clinical module in your office
  • Dental Practice Act home study course
  • Flexible schedule-evenings or weekends OK!
