Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention spearheading September campaign.
The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) is spearheading an annual campaign observing Dental Infection Control Awareness Month, with plans to hold it each year in September.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect dental practices across the country, OSAP is raising awareness for its new Dental Infection Control Awareness Month (DICAM) initiative, with the stated goals being to supplement CDC information, support infection control coordinators, and build patient trust in infection control.
Dental practices are encouraged to demonstrate their commitment to infection control with free campaign materials from OSAP, including posters, brochures, sample patient letters, social media posts, and conversation starter scripts.
