You need CE for licensure renewal, and in addition to attending CE meetings, you also can take advantage of online CE programs offered by the MDA and the ADA.
MDA Online CE
MDA members can earn two CE credits from a following course. Simply select a course from the list, read the article, take the test and submit your answers to the MDA. To receive the CE credits offered, you must correctly answer 70% of the questions. For non-member dentists, the fee is $50 per credit hour, which must be paid before CE verification is provided. Available courses include Amalgam Waste Best Management Practices and BNDD Controlled Substance Guidelines.
ADA Online CE
ADA Online CE allows you to complete courses and earn ADA CERP credits. As a partner with the ADA, the MDA earns royalties from the ADA for MDA members who take ADA Online CE. In addition, through JADA Online CE, licensed U.S. dentists can earn up to two CE credits each month through online testing and submission grading.
