Board Member Spotlight: David Kierce

The board member spotlight showcases an OSAP board member monthly to allow you to get to know OSAP's leadership better and to recognize our board members' outstanding contributions to the field and the organization. For the November 2021 spotlight, meet the OSAP Association Board Vice-Chairman David Kierce.

When and why did you join OSAP?

I joined OSAP in 2014 when I became responsible for the Infection Control and Prevention portfolio for Dentsply Sirona. The quickest way to get up to speed and understand infection control and prevention was to go to the experts: OSAP

What’s one thing — either industry/work-related or not — you learned in the past month?

When things don't go your way, don't think of it as a negative, but as character building.

What is your current occupation?

Dentsply Sirona Senior Global Product Manager for Diagnostic (RINN), Cavitron, and Infection Prevention focused on New Product Development.

What do you love most about dentistry/infection control?

I get to help improve oral health and create healthy smiles in a safe environment.

What is the last book you read?

12 Rules For Life by Jordan B. Peterson.

What is your favorite OSAP resource and why?

From Policy to Practice: OSAP's Guide to the CDC Guidelines (2019 Edition). I get questions both from internal employees and customers on infection control and prevention. When I am unsure, I use this resource to get the answers. When I need more clarity I go to Ask OSAP, which is another great resource.

Why did you join the OSAP board?

I love the OSAP Mission: To be the leading provider of infection prevention and control education, training, and credentialing that supports safe dental visits. I love the passion, devotion and collaboration that OSAP members and board members bring in achieving this mission. It's contagious and wanted to be part of it!
