Q: I've attended the Annual Conference in the past. Am I able to register for the on-demand recordings this year?
A: Certainly!

Q: Who should register?
A: Annual Conference is developed for participants who already have experience in dental infection prevention and safety who are seeking to build on, apply, or enhance existing knowledge using content in practical applications to master concepts.

The OSAP Dental Infection Control Boot Camp™ is a foundational-level educational course with a comprehensive curriculum that covers all the basics in infection prevention and safety. The course content is consistent year-over-year with only minor updates based on new regulations or guidelines.

The OSAP Annual Conference is the premier infection control and patient safety education event in dentistry. This action-packed conference delivers the latest updates on evolving guidance and emerging infection prevention and safety issues. The content offered at Annual Conference changes every year.

A: The conference took place Thursday, June 16 - Saturday, June 18, 2022, in Minneapolis, MN. All sessions were recorded.

The conference recordings will become available on Friday, July 8. All participants will receive access to the session recordings until Friday, September 9.
