The 2024 OSAP Annual Conference, celebrating the organization’s 40th anniversary, is set to take place from May 30 to June 1 in Tucson, Arizona.

The 2024 Organization for Safety, Asepsis, and Prevention (OSAP) Annual Conference is scheduled to take place in Tucson, Ariz, from May 30 to June 1. The event will focus on exploring current and emerging infection prevention and safety issues within oral healthcare settings.

This year marks a significant milestone for OSAP as it celebrates 40 years of efforts to make dental visits safer. Special events, including an ’80s-themed welcome dinner, live and silent auctions, and an Under the Stars reception, are planned in honor of this anniversary.

The conference will feature speakers from notable organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from decision-makers and leaders in infection prevention and safety.

In addition to presentations, attendees can expect practical learning opportunities through plenary and concurrent sessions led by nationally and internationally recognized experts. The conference will also provide a platform for networking, allowing professionals to connect with colleagues, sponsors, exhibitors, and industry luminaries from around the world.

A pre-conference workshop will be held on May 29, offering dental healthcare personnel the chance to gain a comprehensive understanding of infection prevention and safety regulations, standards, guidelines, recommendations, and best practices. This workshop aims to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate and implement these essential elements effectively.

Whether attendees choose to include the workshop in their full conference registration or register for it separately, the event promises to provide valuable insights and practical solutions to enhance infection prevention efforts in oral healthcare settings.

Dental professionals are encouraged to register by April 3 to take advantage of early-bird rates.
