New CE Rules for Dentists

In March 2016, a new requirement that dentists complete 30 hours of continuing education (CE) per two-year license renewal cycle took effect. Dentists should be aware of the following details from the CE rule.

FACES OF THE CDA

While he doesn’t own a cape (to our knowledge), he does own dark framed Clark Kent glasses and leads a life where his colleagues, students and acquaintances rarely know his full identity.

To some he’s a general dentist (sans white coat), to others he’s a concert pianist (cue the phone booth outfit change into a royal blue velvet suit jacket). And it should be noted he’s an accountant, too (refer back to the Clark Kent glasses).

Dr. Cody Garrison is a practice owner of City Roots Dental, the staff pianist and soloist for the Boulder Symphony, a pianist for Opera Colorado, and an affiliate faculty member at Metropolitan State University of Denver Department of Music.

New Lobby Day Format

Lobby day has a new format this year. The CDA and its lobbyists will offer training sessions to participants by webinar the week before lobby day. When dentists arrive to the Capitol on lobby day, they will assemble into regional teams and begin the day by speaking with legislators during a breakfast reception. Afterward, the regional teams will go to the House and Senate floors to speak with legislators who did not attend the breakfast reception.

The CDA has updated the lobby day format to make meetings with legislators more efficient and allow the lobby day event to conclude by mid-morning.

What’s at Stake this Legislative Session

This year’s legislative session will set the future course for many important dental programs like CHP+, Medicaid and the OAP senior dental care program. Substantial policy changes are expected for pain management, including opioid prescribing. Additional requirements for practices like data privacy, fee disclosure and background checks in licensure will be discussed. State income tax cuts for individuals and businesses are proposed. Each of these bills will affect you personally and professionally.

Register

Make your voice heard. Join the CDA at the Colorado State Capitol on Friday, Feb. 16, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. You will have the opportunity to meet with your local state legislators to talk about important dental issues, helping set the stage for dentistry’s success during this and future legislative sessions.
