OSAP has a Board of Directors for both its membership association and its educational foundation. The organization also is privileged to have a unique group of global leaders who support the organization as the Friends of OSAP. The Friends have a different and distinctive role from the organizations' Boards. Through knowledge exchange and translation, OSAP Friends seek to integrate oral infection control and safety procedures into health infection initiatives globally and represent the larger infection prevention and control communities.
