Continuing Dental Education

OSAP is an ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) provider. ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry.

OSAP designates this activity for up to 24 continuing education credits.

Participants requesting professional continuing education credits will receive a CE verification form to record the CE numbers for the specific courses they attend. To receive continuing education credit, participants must sign in at the conference, attend the sessions, record the assigned CE number for each lecture attended (note: CE verification numbers are announced at the end of each session), and complete the required evaluation forms. Attendees maintain their CE verification form as proof of participation in the educational programming.


All participating faculty are expected to disclose to the audience any significant financial interest or other relationship with:

  1. The manufacturer of any commercial products and/or provider of commercial services discussed in an educational presentation and
  2. Any commercial supporters of the activity.

CE Disclaimer

The Scientific Program of the 2015 OSAP Basic Training Infection Control Boot Camp is planned and presented by the OSAP Educational Program Committee to provide attendees with a relevant and rewarding continuing educational experience. However, neither the content of a course nor the use of specific products in lectures or workshops should be construed as indicating endorsement or approval by OSAP of the views presented or the products used.

Speakers and authors of CE activities are required to present a balanced view of therapeutic options, use generic names of products whenever possible, and refrain from marketing or promoting any products or commercial services. Speakers and authors of CE activities are required to disclose to participants any financial, commercial, or promotional interest in a product or company that may influence their presentations. However, OSAP shall not be liable for a speaker's failure to disclose such interest.

Pleased be advised that courses, speakers or scheduling may change without notice.
