OSHA and HIPAA Online Webinar Program
As a dental professional, continuing your education is part of your job. In addition to Continuing Education credits being required, science is often evolving, and rules are changing. You must keep up with the most current standards to ensure you are providing exceptional care to your patients.
The OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) standards are essential for dental professionals to keep up with. These standards provide clear direction for protecting your patients and their privacy. As a dental professional, you should reference these standards as you maintain your practice.
Over time, the guidelines for both OSHA and HIPAA change. For this reason, The American Society of Cosmetic Dentistry is offering an OSHA and HIPAA online webinar program.
This webinar is designed to give you the information necessary to continue protecting your patients and their privacy. When you complete the webinar, you will also earn two Continuing Education credits.
