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 will include education and certification options.

More information about this initiative will be coming soon to the Dental Infection Control Education & Certification website.

In the meantime, if you’re ready to get a jump start on the educational certificate program, you can begin with steps 1 and 2, which can be taken in either order. Everyone in dentistry and the dental trade is encouraged to complete this program. There are multiple options, so you can complete the steps at your convenience and at your own pace.
