"Mock" Compliance Inspection & Practice Owner Huddle  

Our "mock" safety inspection uses a CDC & OSHA approved checklist.  It works to ensure that proper engineering controls are in place to prevent potential workplace hazards and break the chain of infection in the dental practice setting.  The practice owner "huddle" is provided to review findings and give recommendations to areas that need to be strengthened. The timeframe to complete this option is based on practice size and the practice owner huddle is approximately 30 minutes.   

Compliance Consulting & Team Member Coaching is available upon request and pricing varies based on practice needs.
