"DRNA is the only nationwide full-service waste management company who focuses its efforts solely on theneeds of dentists," said Marc M. Sussman, president and CEO of DRNA.

"As such, we feel we are in the very unique position of having our finger on the pulse of what this niche market requires not only from a compliance, regulatory and waste management perspective, but also what they are looking for in their continuing education requirements. We are frequently asked by our customers if we can assist them with various regulatory training programs. Now we will be happy to say 'yes we can.' This new effort dovetails perfectly with our existing business model and offers an additional layer of value to our customers."
