Introduction: Nosocomial infections are infections that occur 48 hours after receiving care for an unrelated condition in a clinic or a hospital environment, many of which are resistant to at least one of the drugs most commonly used to treat them. The dental clinical settings are reservoirs for the transmission of microbes through aerosols produced by routine dental procedures.
