Information about Infection Control and Bloodborne Pathogens

The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry adheres to all state and federal regulations, as stipulated in guidelines of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American Dental Association. The school also has policies and procedures related to individuals who have bloodborne infectious diseases.

In addition, because dental schools conduct research involving human tissues and fluids, strict infection control regulations are followed to protect the patients, students, staff and faculty who might be involved in such research.

Copies of relevant policies are available upon request to: University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, Office for Clinical Affairs, 8-440 Moos Tower, 515 Delaware St. S.E., Minneapolis, MN 55455 (612-626-4184 or chapm156@umn.edu).
