Get Started

For decades, healthcare professionals have been required to follow various OSHA regulations—most notably the Bloodborne Pathogens and the Hazard Communication Standards. Yet not many clinicians, safety coordinators, or practice owners are not thoroughly familiar with all the OSHA regulations that apply specifically to dentistry.

This course is designed to advance your knowledge and understanding of the regulations as well as OSHA's compliance expectations. If your job intersects with compliance, you will benefit from the course whether you are a Safety Coordinator/Officer, Regional Manager, Compliance Officer, dentist, or team member.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be eligible to take the Credentials Exam to earn the designation of Certified Dental Specialist in OSHA (CDSO® ). Please visit the Maintaining Credentials page for information and requirements for maintaining your credential.
