CDC offers mobile app for dentists to ensure practices meet infection control standards

Dental professionals can use the mobile application CDC DentalCheck to assess and ensure practices meet expectations for safe care.

The app is developed directly from the CDC's infection prevention checklist for dental settings and is free to download. Users can check "yes" or "no" for adherence to office policies or practices. It reviews basic infection prevention principles and links to full recommendations and source documents for dental settings. The results and notes can be exported for record management.

Infection prevention coordinators are encouraged to use the app at least once a year to assess administrative policies and practices, and engage in direct observation of personnel and patient-care practices.
