Named for Dr. James Crawford's landmark 1970s study that confirmed the presence of contamination in the dental operatory, the OSAP-produced video training system "If Saliva Were Red" features an 8-minute video (on DVD) that uses real dental professionals to highlight:
- common infection control and safety flaws,
- the cross-contamination dental workers would see if saliva were red, and
- how controlling contamination by using personal barrier protection, safe work practices, and effective infection control products, reduces the risk of exposure.
Produced without a voice track, the teaching method uses a DVD with visual rather than verbal cues to stress the need for procedure-specific infection control, making it a suitable training tool for classrooms and practices around the world, regardless of native language.
The teaching method also includes an 8-page companion book — How to Tell the Story: A Trainer's Guide— complements the DVD, providing educators, consultants, and in-practice instructors with visual cues and talking points from the DVD, answers to common questions, a checklist of the elements of a comprehensive dental personnel training program, and lists of web resources.
