ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The Organization for Safety & Asepsis Procedures (OSAP) will hold its fifth annual Infection Control Boot Camp, co-sponsored by OSAP-Federal Services Jan. 23-26, 2006 in Atlanta. The program is geared to federal dental 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, 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.
