Gary Mahr, Director of Vendor Relations at Darby Dental Supply, was named Chair of the Membership Committee for The Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP).
As Chair of the Membership Committee, Gary will focus on engaging dental offices and individual practitioners with OSAP’s mission to achieve the highest standard of care in infection control and patient safety. With nearly 30 years of experience in the dental industry, Gary has an extensive background in warehousing operations, purchasing, customer service and regulatory processes.
“Infection control is more important than ever before,” said Gary. “Thanks to OSAP, infection control is no longer an afterthought in dental office’s standard operating procedure. With regulation always evolving and varying from state to state, the importance of OSAP’s work and on-tap resources cannot be overstated.”
Gary will work to create a program that educates and incentivizes both the sales rep and their customers to join OSAP and utilize their wealth of infection control resources.
“At Darby, we regularly utilize the FAQ and ‘Ask OSAP’ features to get authoritative answers for our customers,” said Gary. “While this currently gives us a competitive advantage in the marketplace, the goal is to give all dental reps and dental offices access to this crucial information. OSAP is not about making a sale. It’s about ensuring the safest dental visit for everyone.”
