Information about the author

The article explores an integrated approach to managing infectious risks in dentistry, starting with the issue of multidrug resistance and ending with modern methods of sterilization and disinfection. Special attention is paid to changes in infection control practices in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The advantages of using laminar flow cabinets as an effective means of ensuring sterile conditions are discussed.
