Dental Infection Control Awareness Month (#DICAM19) is here and we’re ready to “Take Safety Viral!” The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) is a growing community of dental clinicians, researchers, and industry representatives who advocate for safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare.
We encourage everyone in the dental industry to participate. OSAP’s goal is to see dental practices, educators, consultants, and those in the dental trade posting infection control best practices, success stories, or selfies on social media and joining the conversation using the hashtag #DICAM19.
The dental industry is doing great things and keeping patients safe. We want to hear about them so we can come together, as a community, and continue to build up the importance of dental infection control.
Each week, we will be showcasing one specific element of dental infection control. We encourage you to participate, even if your focus is on a different aspect of dental infection control than what our weekly theme is.
- Week one (09/01 – 09/07): Hand Hygiene
- Week two (09/08 – 09/14): Dental Unit Waterlines
- Week three (09/15 – 09/21): Personal Protective Equipment
- Week four (09/22 – 09/30): Instrument Sterilization
