Infection Control Resources

OSAP, DANB and the DALE Foundation are collaborating on an infection control initiative.

OSAP-DANB-DALE Foundation Collaboration

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 infection prevention and control initiative, developed by experts in the field. This initiative will include education and certification options. Keep an eye on this page – more information about this exciting program will be coming soon!

In the meantime, if you’re ready to get a jump start, you can begin with steps 1 and 2, which can be taken in either order. All the aspects of this initiative build off the educational foundation, so whether you’re interested in expanding your knowledge or pursuing certification, these two steps are the right place to start!

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.
