It is time again for me to review and update MSDS information in the office. I am a dental assistant in Mississippi. Is there is a new CD-ROM available with all the MSDS for the products used only in dentistry? Even if there is a service that one could subscribe to include updates and current changes to new or existing products. MSDS sheets should be obtained directly from the manufacturer or product distributor. To obtain the MSDS sheets you may contact the manufacturer or distributor directly or on-line. A good resource for obtaining the required MSDS sheets are your sales representatives.

The American Dental Association also offers information, resources, and materials (However, some materials are only available to ADA members), including manuals.

The ADA also provides a listing for their members, therefore, if your dentists is a member of the ADA they may access the information at: http://www.ada.org/members/library/webresourc.asp
To obtain MSDS sheets on-line go directly to the manufacturer or distributor's website. If you do not have the manufacturer/distributor's website address you should be able to locate it through a google search engine at:http://www.google.com Type in the name of the manufacturer/distributor and the links will be provided. You may also type in the name of the product, be sure to include MSDS (e.g. Birex surface disinfectant for dentistry MSDS).
OSAP does not maintain a listing of manufacturers or distributors, however, we can provide you with several resources that offer free services to search the MSDS data banks.
