Room: PICASSO (South Convention Center)
Language: English
Chair(s): Oscar Pezonaga (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > Define emerging diseases
  • > Explain reasons of emergence of infectious diseases
  • > Highlight the risk of transmission of emerging infections in the dental setting


Over the past years, newly emerging diseases have been reported. These diseases may be carried by patients seeking routine dental treatment and thus become a concern for dental personnel. Our duty as health care professionals is to anticipate the process and cope with each new contagious disease as it emerges. Many infection control procedures are already in place, and we should be utilizing them in our daily practice.

Staying updated on emerging diseases and preventive measures will certainly make a difference.
