I thought the [OSHA 301] course was extremely straight forward and comprehensive covering all the required compliance issues. You did a great job keeping all the information very organized and pertinent to everyday dental practice. This is a course that you can immediately utilize the next day in your dental practice as a model to make your office fully compliant.
