Under authority of rule 20CSR. 2110-2.240(2)B, the Missouri
Dental Association may grant approval to non-approved continuing education
providers for specific programs.
Because current state rules require continuing education for
relicensure be directly related to the practice of dentistry or dental hygiene,
only speakers presenting programs directly related to the practice of dentistry
or dental hygiene will be approved for MDA accreditation.
Educational Programs and Presenters
Only individual presentations by a specified lecturer(s) will be considered
for MDA accreditation. No blanket accreditation will be given for a topic
presented on multiple dates or a lecturer to speak on multiple dates.
Accreditation Application must be completed and submitted to the
Missouri Dental Association along with the presenter's current curriculum
vitae and a detailed outline of the presentation and program agenda. Handouts
for the program should also be sent, if available. The MDA Committee on
Education will consider the applications and grant approval with a majority vote
of the committee members. MDA's name and/or logo cannot be used on promotional
materials unless approved by the MDA. All requests must be submitted at
least 30 days prior to the presentation.
Accreditation applicants must include a non‑refundable $150 fee
with their application for EACH proposed presentation/speaker. If the same
presentation will be given on multiple dates, an application fee must be
included for each date. Please complete one application per presentation.
