Faculty Resources

Faculty Corner

Our Faculty Resources host a variety of teaching tools for educators, such as case studies, student handouts, and an easy-to-use module that enables educators to assign courses from our CE library to students.

This module is as simple as selecting the course, creating the assignment, distributing the assignment ID to students, and then reviewing completions.

In addition, our Faculty Resources provide links to student fundraising opportunities, and to exclusive product purchase opportunities for faculty and students at special pricing from Crest + Oral-B.


Syllabus: Infection Control/Exposure Control in Oral Healthcare Settings

The syllabus, which may be modified to meet individual institutional requirements, provides a comprehensive description of a 12-module online course.

The course is intended to meet educational requirements of Dental Students, Dental Hygiene Students, Dental Assistant Students as mandated by OSHA and other federal, state, local and professional organizations related to Standard and Transmission-based Precautions.

Each module may be taken online followed by an examination. A PDF is also available for each module. Module 12 is a video summary and how-to demonstration of critical topics.

Successful completion of all modules may be followed by a question and answer period by the institutional course director before each student demonstrates competence in a clinical setting.


These quick links enable you to view recommended courses based on curriculum stage, create new assignments for your students, review assignments you've already created, and see which continuing dental education courses have received the top ratings.
