Submit Your CE


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.

CE must be obtained through 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 through the Member CE Depository. Here’s how it works.
