Infection Control Article & Questions

Read the article on infection control in the dental office.  It is very good and mentions several of the exact topics that we have been covering.  Answer the questions on paper or you may email them to me-whichever you prefer. They are to be completed in class today, so you may either turn them into Ms Rogers or email them to me today.  Sorry that I’m not there again today-Izzy got sick this morning at school and I had to go get her.  Hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
