    • Description:
      and Overview. Changes in the science of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and transmission in a private dental practice provide an opportunity to update dental health care providers about this pathogen. The authors' aims in this review were to create awareness of health care- associated transmission of hepatitis C and provide an update on the changes in testing and treatment. The authors include data from population-based epidemiologic surveys, clinical practice guidelines, surveillance reports and practice protocols.|In the United States, the elevated prevalence of chronic HCV infection among baby boomers-people born during the period from 1945 through 1965-led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to release new national screening guidelines. The authors summarize information about the natural history and epidemiology of hepatitis C and describe the new guidelines and novel treatment options. In addition, the authors provide an overview of how outbreaks of health care-associated HCV are detected and prevented. Practical Implications. Because dental health care professionals likely will treat people with current infection, education in the current science of HCV infection is useful.
