November 11, 2008 - 1-800-DENTIST Sponsors ADA CE Online's Safety Course

CHICAGO (November 11, 2008)-1-800-DENTIST, the nation's leading dental marketing company that provides practices with new dental patients, will be sponsoring ADA CE Online's latest course, "Operational Safety Protocols," outlining the critical procedures that prohibit direct or indirect transmission of a bloodborne pathogen or infectious microorganisms.

This is 1-800-DENTIST's fourth course sponsored in the last two years. "We are proud to sponsor the ADA CE Online courses for the second year in a row," says Fred Joyal CEO and Co-Founder of 1-800-DENTIST. "The site continues to be an invaluable resource that keeps dental practices up-to-date on the latest in techniques, procedures and technologies that are so important to maintaining success in dentistry." Partnering with the ADA to enable dentists to get the ongoing training they need to practice dentistry at the highest level is one of our long-standing goals as a company.

The safety of dental patients is at the root of the success of every dental practice. This course outlines the most appropriate protocol to help prevent exposure to dangerous materials, as well as the use and limitations that will reduce or control exposure. The course pays special attention to fluke emergencies and how the entire staff can recover from an operatory catastrophe.

The "Operational Safety Protocols" course will be available beginning November 2008.  Visit or for additional information, contact ADA CE Online via e-mail at or call 1-877-4ADACE1.
