The CDA House of Delegates has directed that, starting Jan. 1, 2010, all CDA members must complete a minimum of 15 hours per year of dental continuing education (CE) credits and document the credits to maintain membership in good standing.
CE can be obtained from numerous sources including state, local and national dental society meetings, dental study clubs, seminars, specialty group or academy meetings, university sponsored CE programs, original research and presentations, internships, residencies, military service, graduate study, home study, and more.
Starting in January 2010, at least eight of the 15 hours of CE must be at courses designed to enhance dental clinical skills and/or procedures. These hours must be obtained through CE programs offered by an organization that is:
- an American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) recognized provider,
- approved by the Academy of General Dentistry Program Approval for Continuing Education (PACE), or
- an American Medical Association Category One continuing medical education course.
Documentation of CE credits should be submitted with the annual dues payment for the following year. The CDA maintains a copy of this CE documentation and can retrieve these records when requested (please allow sufficient processing time).
Documentation may be recorded using the form below.
