The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP), the advocate for The Safest Dental Visit™, has announced that the North American Dental Group (NADG) has joined OSAP as a Professional Practice II (Group) member. NADG is the first large group to join OSAP in that capacity. The Professional Practice II member level allows large, multiple-location group practices to give professional staff at all their sites full access to OSAP’s resources a single rate.
NADG decided to join OSAP after their compliance officer attended the 2016 OSAP Boot Camp in Atlanta. She was so impressed with the OSAP organization and its educational programming that the company made the decision to join as a Professional Practice II (Group) member so they could provide all their member dental practices with full access to the tremendous resources available through OSAP.
NADG was included on the 2015 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America. It was the third consecutive year that NADG appeared on the prestigious list. “Our goal has always been to become the best in class in our industry while delivering unsurpassed patient care,” said Dr. Andrew Matta, Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of North American Dental Group.
“We’re thrilled that NADG recognized the value OSAP provides and made this decision to allow all its practices access to our many resources,” said Therese Long, Executive Director of OSAP. “Company-wide access gives their staff the benefit not only of in-depth science-based educational programs and training tools, but also timely alerts and reliable information and resources for dealing with fast-breaking issues such as Zika Virus and other emerging disease threats.”
Celebrating over 30 years of service to the worldwide dental community, OSAP is a growing community of clinicians, educators, students, policy-makers, and industry representatives who advocate for safe and infection-free delivery of oral healthcare. OSAP focuses on strategies to improve compliance with safe practices and on building a strong network of recognized infection control experts.
