Continuing Education Programs

We are currently limiting in-person Continuing Education class size to 15 attendees for BLS/CPR and 20 attendees for lectures. We will ask for proof of vaccination and we require indoor mask wearing per an Executive Committee decision.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the New York State Education Department will allow you to complete 100% of your continuing education as self-study, from now until January 1, 2022, so long as it is taken from an approved provider and is an acceptable subject area for dentistry.

We provide a transcript at the completion of each CE course, and we record CE credits with the State for all New York State ADA members.
