Kay Carl, RN, BS

Daughter of a hygienist and married to a dentist, Kay is an Infection Preventionist. Active in the hospital-focused infection control organization, Association for Infection Control and Epidemiology, including serving as a national officer for four years, she has used this knowledge to cross over into dental infection control and prevention. The majority of her peers work in hospitals in departments that specifically address Infection Prevention. Specialists in their field, they are equipped to deal with government standards and guidelines. Dentists are expected to do the same without similar professional support. A seasoned writer and speaker for both medical and dental venues, she has worked with AzDA since 1991 to offer continuing education in infectious disease and infection control to its members, providing practical ways to prevent adverse outcomes.
