The Michigan Dental Assistants Association will hold a special Mission of Mercy fundraising continuing education seminar on Friday, Nov. 15, 2013, at the MDA headquarters in Okemos. Six CE credits will be available.
All proceeds for this special seminar go to the 2014 Mission of Mercy Event at Ferris State University. As added incentive, the Mecosta County Community Foundation will be matching up to 50 cents per dollar for all money donated.
Mary Govoni, CDA, RDA, RDH, MBA, will present the morning session titled “The New OSHA/MIOSHA Hazard Communication Standard – What Are the Requirements for Dentistry?” from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.. This program will review updated Hazard Communication Standard to comply with the Global Harmonization Initiative to standardize chemical safety information released by OSHA and MIOSHA in 2013.

This program will cover all the required information and will assist dental teams in meeting this mandate.

The presenters will discuss the ever-changing world of CAD/CAM.
