Welcome to Credential Keeper! I am Dr. Marnie Oakley, Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs. I would like to welcome you to the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine. As you are entering an environment which houses an ambulatory hospital which is visited by over 60,000 patients each year, it is important that we are all in full compliance with all regulatory requirements to ensure the safety and the well-being of our patients--regardless if you are directly involved in their care or work in an area which does not directly deals with the care of our patients. Here at Pitt, we developed software to help streamline our credentialing process; the "Credential Keeper" allows you to submit documents that offer proof of training and other requirements. The administration expects you to take this matter seriously. Please take a moment and watch the instructional video which will tell you how to prepare the required documents. It is critical that you understand that the knowledge and understanding of the various training materials and certifications is critical. In other words, if you are not credentialed, your supervisor will be informed and steps must be taken to bring you to immediate compliance. In conclusion, I thank you for your attention and I ask that you please contact us if you have any questions regarding the process. We are happy to help and assist you.
