The Organization for Safety, Asepsis, and Prevention (OSAP) has approved three new corporate members as part of its ongoing expansion efforts. The companies are SolmeteX, Stoma Dental, and Whip Mix. OSAP’s corporate membership program acknowledges and differentiates healthcare companies that demonstrate an unwavering commitment to OSAP and safe dental care. In addition, it helps to sustain critical services delivered by OSAP such as advocacy, education, communications, and training.
“We are delighted to welcome these three great dental manufacturers as OSAP corporate members,” says Therese Long, executive director of OSAP. “Corporate partners are part of OSAP’s unique membership mix that also includes clinicians, policy-makers, public health workers, educators, consultants, and federal dental service personnel. The different types of expertise brought forward by OSAP’s diverse membership help contribute to our ability to translate science into practical patient safety and infection control measures.”
SolmeteX Dental is focused on implementing green products into the dental industry to assist dentist with best management practices as well as complying with regulatory directives. It is an amalgam separator manufacturer in North America and has extensive experience in water chemistry; chemical separation science; process engineering; high performance manufacturing; as well as federal, state, and local regulations governing water and hazardous wastes.
Stoma Dental is dedicated to developing and bringing to the market cost-effective disposables for patient safety. Stoma Dental’s DOVE (Disposable Oral Valve Evacuation) dental high-volume ejector (HVE) and saliva ejector (SE) devices were designed to be simple and intuitive to install. DOVE products are manufactured in an ISO 13485 facility in Phoenix, AZ.
Whip Mix products are distributed worldwide to dental laboratories, schools, government institutions, and — increasingly — dental offices. From the original “egg beater” spatulator for investment, their product range now includes vacuum mixing equipment, model trimmers, ceramic pressing and firing ovens, waxes, die stones, casting investments, fixed and semi-adjustable articulators and face-bows, and digital CAD-CAM products.
Celebrating over 30 years of service to the worldwide dental community, OSAP is a growing community of clinicians, educators, policy-makers, and industry representatives who advocate for safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare. OSAP focuses on strategies to improve compliance with safe practices and on building a strong network of recognized infection control experts. OSAP offers an extensive online collection of resources, publications, FAQs, checklists, and toolkits to help dental professionals ensure that every visit is The Safest Dental Visit for patients and the dental team.
