The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) is celebrating Dental Infection Control Awareness Month during the month of September.

This year's theme is "Spread the Word, Prevent Infections." Each week will have a different infection control focus:

  • Week 1: Hand hygiene
  • Week 2: Dental unit water lines
  • Week 3: Personal protective equipment
  • Week 4: Instrument sterilization
  • Week 5: Infection control coordinator

OSAP encourages dental practices, educators, consultants, and those in the dental trade to post infection control best practices, success stories, or selfies on social media. Join the conversation using the hashtag #DICAM21.
