Awareness of the need to incorporate an effective infection control program within a prosthodontic practice requires the faculty of a prosthodontic residency program to present a clear and workable model that will allow the flexibility necessary to accommodate the changes in infection control procedures and materials. The use of the barrier system to insulate the operatory, resident, faculty, and dental laboratory is discussed. Current disinfection and sterilization methods used to maintain the barriers are recommended.
