Disease, Health and Infection Control Info

The bloodborne diseases we worry about most in dentistry are HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.

  • Here are some great links for information on these diseases.


  • For general info on HIV, Check out “The Body” website. 





  • The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is at epidemic proportions in North America, and it turns out that chronic HPV infection has huge implications for dentistry.  Studies show that a significant amount of oropharyngeal cancer can be attributed to the human papilloma virus.



  • Check out this website from the oral cancer foundation for more great information! (This is an incredibly helpful website on oral cancer; it has a specific dental section and a separate section on HPV-related cancers)






  • For all kinds of information about TB in healthcare settings, check this out.
