Dental Nursing, The Dentist and Dental Update are proud to announce the launch of this year’s Infection Prevention & Control team awards.

Registration is now open to practices keen to share their best practice in infection control and we are excited to reveal that Aura Infection Control, the industry leaders in dental infection control, are this year’s supporting partners.

With a reputation for making expert compliance easy, the team at Aura Infection Control believes effective infection control is the bedrock of any dental practice.

Additionally, Aura’s courses take dental professionals step-by-step through the most effective cross-contamination control processes and share how best they should be implemented.

Everything – from cleaning and disinfecting dental unit waterlines to ensuring compliance to HTM 01-05 to instrument inspection, cleaning and transportation – is covered in exacting detail.

Their courses also allow delegates to get ‘hands on’ with the latest equipment in a specially designed decon room – something online courses just can’t do.

Meanwhile, registration for this year’s Infection Prevention & Control team awards of 2019 could not be simpler.
