• We studied infection control practice changes of Japan's dentists in 2008 and 2011.
• Improvement in infection control practices was found in dentists in 2011 compared with 2008.
• Knowledge about standard precautions is a potential factor for improvement in infection control practices.
• Willingness to treat HIV patients is also a potential factor for improvement in infection control practices.
We surveyed compliance with infection control practices (ICPs) and factors associated with ICPs reported by dentists in Japan in 2008 and 2011. ICPs improved during this period as did the proportion of dentists specializing in oral surgery, the proportion of dentists reporting a willingness to treat HIV and AIDS patients, and the proportion of dentists reporting knowledge about universal and standard precautions. Stronger associations between ICPs and these 3 factors were found in 2011 than in 2008.
