Abstract

Some patients may be at risk for complications from relatively common infectious diseases. Influenza, tuberculosis and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection can lead to illness and even death in elderly, medically compromised and institutionalized individuals. Dental personnel caring for these individuals should adopt preventive strategies that are simple and inexpensive in addition to standard infection control guidelines.
