Lisa L. Cairns

Lisa Cairns:  Lisa have been teaching OSHA in Dental Practices for over 18 years, she understands it can become overwhelming task, leaving you confused on where to begin. We also understand that it’s something that nobody looks forward to doing.  Therefore, if we can change that even a bit by sharing real life stories to keep our audience engaged and simplifying this process, then we all win.

Lisa, started her Dental career in the 1980’s – right when OSHA was just making its way into Dental Offices across the US. She was exposed to many situations herself, many were not very healthy. She has used her experiences/exposures to her advantage by educating safety of all of those just embarking into Dental or those who may not have taken OSHA as seriously as maybe we should have. We believe in making it as enjoyable as possible with motivational games and interactive demonstrations that can make participants pay close attention to instructions while a positive approach can turn these meetings into enjoyable times filled with proactive learning and many laughs. When we leave a training and hear “That was not as painful as I thought.  In fact, it was fun!” we all win.
