Thank you VERY much for support of BBP training and invaluable information. The information you sent is very useful for our clinic and in the education of our students. I am pleased to know that there is such a fantastic group to support safety in the workplace.

Thank you so very much for these incredibly well-detailed, excellent responses and the additional enclosed FAQ's and answers. I am sure that the Coast Guard Chief Dental Officer requesting assistance in this matter with OSAP's outstanding guidance will be equally grateful for your help in providing these references. This more than covers all of the justification and rationale required for the topic of laundering commercially vs. a program managing contaminated laundry in-house. Thank you again once again OSAP and to the entire Ask OSAP Team for your outstanding service!

I often see school manuals listing the requirement to have hair up which seems to make sense, however, I couldn’t find any references justifying the need to keep hair secured and out of the face. It seems like common sense that it would allow the doc or hygienist to be able to see better, and, limits the amount of surface area exposed to aerosols. I appreciate the references provided through the “Ask OSAP” benefit of my membership.

The OSAP website is great and tremendous asset for us at Healing Hands Health Center as we pursue excellence in all we do. We have Eastern Tennessee State University senior dental hygiene students at our clinic as well as senior dental students from the University of Tennessee (a group of 4 students rotating through our clinic for2 weeks at a time), and seven volunteer dentists, one part-time dentist, and instructor from U of T and myself an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. We have been very impressed with the material on the website and the ease with which we can secure information and documentation. It allows us to go as deeply as we want in the pursuit of information. Keep up the exceptional work of OSAP – I know that Brittany Robinson, RDH our Infection Control Coordinator and I will be continually blessed by your diligent pursuit of excellence as well.

As an RN, I can’t tell you how pleased that I was to learn about OSAP and also utilized many of your resources. I was able to attend the boot camp in 2013 and 2015, both were extremely useful and well done. Keep up the good work!!!

Like everything OSAP does, this (Member Survey, October 2015) is an exceptionally good survey! OSAP has been and will always be my favorite international dental organization! Keep up the great work and as Diana Ross would sing “If you need me, call me…”
