Even though the ins and outs of infection control can seem very “ho hum” in light of new diagnostic technology and other innovative products, it makes sense that as one of the “go-to” team members for heading up IC protocol, that dental hygienists would find the meaning in the mundane.

What is OSAP?
Founded in 1984 and formally incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1985, OSAP is a unique group of dental educators and consultants, researchers, clinicians, industry representatives, and other interested persons with a collective mission to be the world’s leading advocate for the safe and infection-free delivery of oral care. OSAP supports this commitment to dental workers and the public through quality education and information dissemination.

OSAP is a valuable resource for the dental profession and dental industry. Its checklists, issue foci and position papers provide practical, scientifically sound information and recommendations on specific issues like H1N1, dental unit water quality, “green” infection control, instrument processing, surface asepsis, percutaneous injuries and much more.
