Dental Infection Control Education & Certification

Over the years, infection control breaches have made headlines and caused anxiety among patients and the public. Surveys show that dental infection control education and training protocols vary from practice to practice. And although many infection control resources are available, these resources vary in quality and relevance.

To address these concerns, OSAP, DANB and the DALE Foundation joined together to create a comprehensive Dental Infection Control Education & Certification initiative, developed by experts in the field. This Dental Infection Control Education & Certification initiative includes education and certification programs:

The OSAP-DANB CDIPC and DISIPC certifications are in development and more information will be available later this year.
