Event Details

Course Outline:

Aseptic technique is the method used to prevent cross-contamination and the transmission of pathogens. The use of aseptic technique during dental surgical procedures, and particularly dental implant surgery, in the dental-office-based practice setting, is a critical component of pathogen control, a successful surgical outcome, and the health and safety of the patient and the dental team.

While each practice has their own method of achieving asepsis, this course will explore a commonly recognised team-led approach, providing you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to standardise your surgical aseptic technique and ensure patient and staff safety.


  1. 1. Define the role and responsibilities of each surgical team member
  2. 2. Demonstrate correct surgical hand antisepsis, gowning and gloving
  3. 3. Prepare the patient, surgical site and environment in accordance with evidence-based and best practice standards
  4. 4. Apply aseptic technique principles and practices utilising a standardised approach
