Oral Health Access Supervision Program


This course meets the 8-hour CE requirement pertaining to the practice of dental hygiene needed to apply for an Oral Health Access Supervision Program (OHASP) permit through the Ohio State Dental Board.

In the State of Ohio, dental hygienists are now able to practice under certain conditions (e.g., in nursing homes, head start programs) without the dentist present under the OHASP. Dentists and dental hygienists must apply for an OHASP permit and numerous requirements must be met for this to happen. This course will review all of the requirements necessary to obtain an OHASP permit and update the participants on the populations that can be treated as well as record keeping and infection control updates.

4 hours - self-paced   11/18/2016 - 12/2/2016
The self-paced course materials with accompanying quiz will be emailed to each registrant by 11/18/2016.
