MRSA in Dental Settings

About This Course

Today, there is much concern about MRSA. MRSA, pronounced MERSA, stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. When patients ask the dental team about staph infections and MRSA they are looking for information and confirmation that they won’t get an infection from their dental visit. We can use this opportunity to tell patients about our infection control procedures and assure them that they are safe in our office. Everyone on the dental team should be able to answer simple questions from patients about MRSA infections and infection control. This course provides information and reliable resources on MRSA transmission..
