Continuing Education

Dentists
There are two types of CE credit available at the Symposium -- ADA (American Dental Association) and AGD (Academy of General Dentistry). There are specific requirements to obtain each type of CE credit. An instruction sheet with directions on how to obtain ADA and/or AGD CE credit will be available at the CE table near registration and in the Exhibit Hall. Please be sure to review the process for the CE applicable to you.

The American Association for Public Health Dentistry (AAPHD) is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider. ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry. Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to ADA CERP at www.ada.org/goto/cerp. Session Objectives:  Objectives for each session will be posted/announced prior to the start of each session. They will also be listed appropriately on the session evaluation. Disclosure: All participating faculty are expected to disclose to the audience any significant financial interest or other relationship with: the manufacturer of any commercial products and/or provider of commercial services discussed in an educational presentation, and any commercial supporters of the activity.
