Overview

The 2022 OSAP Dental Infection Control Boot Camp™ is a fast-paced, foundational-level educational course presented by national and international experts in dental infection prevention and patient safety. This year, participate by joining us in person in Atlanta, GA, or by purchasing the on-demand recordings!

The course curriculum is based on the CDC Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings-2003, the 2016 Summary of Infection Prevention Practices in Dental Settings: Basic Expectations for Safe Care, the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (1910.1030), and the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (1910.2000). Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, course content will also cover the most up-to-date interim guidance and related regulations.

Participants will leave this course with an understanding of relevant infection control laws, regulations, guidelines, standards, and best practices. They will also leave with practical tips on how to implement them in their practice setting.

Health & Safety Policy

Current as of September 1, 2021

The health and safety of our participants, exhibitors, vendors, speakers, and OSAP staff is our top priority. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, our health and safety policy may be updated to meet the current science and evidence-based guidance.

  1. All face-to-face participants, exhibitors, vendors, speakers, and OSAP staff are required to be fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC) OR submit a negative RT- PCR COVID-19 (NAAT) test, which is highly accurate, taken within 48 hours before arrival at the course hotel. An antigen test will not be accepted to meet the testing requirements for entry to the meeting.
  2. Participants, exhibitors, vendors, and speakers must upload proof of vaccine during the online course registration OR agree to provide negative testing results at course check-in.
  3. As an additional safety measure, antigen tests will be required daily beginning on Monday, January 24 for all unvaccinated individuals. Vaccinated individuals will be given the opportunity to test if they choose. OSAP will cover the cost of the daily antigen test.
  4. All in-person participants will be required to wear masks in indoor events regardless of vaccination status. Masks may only be removed when a guest is actively eating or drinking.
  5. Masks are not required for outdoor events.
  6. The hotel will provide hand sanitization stations throughout the event area and other public spaces.
  7. OSAP will offer distanced seating sections to accommodate various levels of comfort. The in-person events may be limited in attendance due to space capacity.

Individuals who experience any of the following should NOT participate in the in-person course in Atlanta:

If you must cancel within 14 days of the course due to one of the events listed above, you may still participate in the On-Demand Only option. As soon as you become aware of your symptoms or exposure, please contact [email protected] to cancel your attendance in Atlanta.

Travel Tips:

  • Currently, air travel is not recommended unless you are fully vaccinated.
  • At least one week prior to leaving for the course ensure you have reviewed current CDC Travel Guidance.
  • If for some reason you become ill during the course, OSAP will provide a list of local sites which provide testing. The expense of any medical care is the responsibility of the individual. Depending on your mode of transportation, if you become ill with COVID-19, travel home may not be possible until you recover CDC What to Do If You Are Sick.
