All About Us


Always here when you need us.

We provide ongoing support and help you with the day to day challenges of dealing with regulatory agencies.

We’ll assist you with completing forms in the mail.  Also, if you have an inspection, we’ll contact the agency on your behalf to assist you.

Our Process

At Dental Ed, Inc., we do things a little differently. We don't just sell you a manual full of forms that you have to fill out. We actually help you organize, complete and order the various forms, permits, certificates, supplies and services you will need to complete the compliance process. We've been assisting offices with regulatory compliance since1988 and we're always just a phone call away.


We begin by doing a 'mock inspection' for not only OSHA, but also the California Department of Public Health and the Dental Board of California. Then we design your training course which covers current requirements for these agencies as well as any observed areas of non-compliance.


We provide a file box with protocols for new employee training, safety needle assessment, needlestick protocol and ongoing safety training as well as a system to organize forms, records, and certificates necessary for inspection.


We offer resources for agencies, companies (none of whom we affiliate with), and services which can reduce cost and improve convenience.


We then offer ongoing website, phone and e-mail support to our clients to keep them informed throughout the year until we do their required OSHA annual update. Our goal is to assist your staff in making this process of regulatory compliance as easy as possible.
