Henry Schein, SciCan and Wall Orthodontics in Statesboro held a “Safety Tune-Up” for annual OSHA and HIPPA privacy training last month at Ogeechee Technical College in Statesboro. The continuing education seminar was attended by 15 local and surrounding dental offices.

Host Jackie Dorst, speaker, writer and consultant on dental instrument sterilization, infection prevention and OSHA safety, provided the latest information on infection prevention, OSHA safety and HIPPA privacy protocols. 

“Jackie Dorst brought great insight into critical topics that help our offices run efficiently and with the highest safety standards,” said Dr. Michael Wall, DMD, owner of Wall Orthodontics.

Attendees learned how to implement OSHA’s new GHS chemical safety labeling requirements with internet resources and cost effective labeling. Topics also included emerging diseases, complex technology equipment, as well as more details on why infection prevention breaches prompted CDC to publish the new Summary of Infection Prevention Practices in Dental Settings – Basic Expectations for Safe Care. 

“We were so happy to host this continuing education for our outstanding local dental offices,” Wall said.

The registration fee of $50 per office was collected and were donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch County in honor of the participating dental practices and their staff by Dr. Wall.

SciCan is a full spectrum infection control solutions provider working to provide a complete range of infection control solutions for dentists, opthamologists and medical clinics.

Henry Schein is a worldwide distributor of medical and dental supplies including vaccines, pharmaceuticals, financial services and other services.
