California Dental Practice Act, Infection Control, and OSHA Refresher

6(2, 2, 2) CEU, Core • $199 Member Price

Are you a licensee who’s looking to bang-out all the mandatory courses in one day?
Say no more — our All-In-One covers the following:

  • 2-hours of California Dental Practice Act for California licensees
  • 2-hours of Infection Control for California licensees
  • 2-hours of OSHA refresher to include bloodborne pathogens, hazard communication, materials safety, general office and all the required elements of your compliance in the office for all those classified as being exposed to pathogens

We encourage all licensed as well as unlicensed staff to attend this comprehensive education day which covers scope of practice, infection control regulations from the Dental Board, employee safety issues from Cal-OSHA and a review of the duties and functions of practitioners in dental healthcare provision.

Note: The Infection Control portion of this course DOES NOT meet the mandatory education requirements for unlicensed dental assistants. Unlicensed assistants are required to complete an 8-hour Board-approved course in order to meet employment criteria as an assistant.
