  • Abstract

    Avoiding occupational blood exposures is the primary way to prevent transmission of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in health-care settings. However, hepatitis B immunization and post-exposure management are integral components of a complete program to prevent infection following blood-borne pathogen exposure and are important elements of workplace safety. As we dentists are exposed to blood and body fluids such as saliva routinely in our dental practice, it is of utmost importance to have a sound knowledge on post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) if at all we get in contact with blood of a patient who may be a known or unknown case of HIV or HBV. This article will enlighten you with what to do and what not after getting exposed to patient’s fluids even by a needlestick injury and the NACO guidelines of PEP
