Biotrol International has released a new quarterly newsletter, The Infection Control FORUM. Dan Reinhardt, General Manager of Biotrol, stated that The FORUM takes the Company back to its roots when it was one of the first companies devoted to infection control products. Part of the initial offering included a variety of educational materials related to infection control issues facing the dental practitioner and their staff. As an industry leader, Biotrol believes that it has a responsibility to provide customers, institutions and distributors with news and insights into a wide range of infection control topics. The Company strives to keep the reader aware of the ever-changing and very important science of infection control.
Each issue of The FORUM will contain a feature article on a current topic. The inaugural issue addresses the development of the West Nile Virus and its implications for the dental field. Abstracts or summaries of recent publications or research will also be presented, followed by a section of Frequently Asked Questions that will cover practical issues of interest to the dental professional.
We are fortunate to have Louis C. DePaola, D.D.S., M.S., Professor at the University of Maryland in the Department of Diagnostic Sciences and Pathology, as our editor. Dr. DePaola is very active in the field, is a member of various ADA councils and professional associations, and has published several articles on infection control issues. Dr. DePaola has prepared a thought-provoking inaugural issue. An exciting editorial calendar has been planned for future issues.
As an additional benefit, each issue of The FORUM will provide one hour of CE credit from The Richmond Institute for Continuing Dental Education. The Richmond Institute is our newest group, formed to provide CE courses and educational materials to members of the dental profession.
