ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The Organization for Safety & Asepsis Procedures (OSAP) will hold its sixth annual Infection Control Boot Camp, co-sponsored by OSAP and the U.S. Federal Services, Jan. 22-25, 2007 in Atlanta.  The program is geared to federal services dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, and laboratory technicians who have been assigned responsibilities in infection control and occupational health/safety, but is also applicable to large civilian dental practices, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), dental insurers, dental manufacturer sales/marketing staff, dental infection control consultants, faculty of dental schools, dental hygiene and dental assisting programs, and infection control nurses who work closely with dental clinics. The OSAP Infection Control Boot Camp is also an excellent train-the-trainer program.

The OSAP Infection Control Boot Camp offers a way for dental professionals to verify competency in dental infection control and safety principles. The four-day program will provide the latest information on the implementation and management of effective infection control and occupational health and safety programs for dental settings, emphasizing the infectious diseases and occupational risks associated with dentistry.  Attendees will receive up to 27 CE credit hours.
