The advent of HIV/aids has led to a renewed interest in infection control and occupational safety in dentistry. The full implementation of "Universal Precautions" to prevent cross-infection of HIV, hepatitis B, and other blood borne pathogens would have a heavy financial implication on developing countries like Nigeria which are faced with the arduous problem of coping with scarce resources. Dentistry is bound to cost more when effective infection control is practised. This paper therefore proposes recommendations for minimum, practicable and acceptable infection control standards which are not only cost effective but also attainable.
