“Whether you are a beginner or have years of experience in dental infection prevention and safety, we encourage you to join us at the 2023 OSAP Boot Camp,” says OSAP Executive Director Michelle Lee, CPC. “Ensuring a safe dental visit is a team effort. Everyone from the assistant to the hygienist to the practice manager to the dentist is involved. And so are the educators, consultants, and sales representatives who sell dental infection control products and services. Participating in OSAP Boot Camp will ensure you and your team understand relevant infection control laws, regulations, guidelines, standards, and best practices to protect yourselves and provide safe care to every patient.”
