Questions about our annual convention

Earning C.E.

How many C.E. credits can I earn?

We offer expansive opportunities for you to earn C.E.; however, the Dental Board of California regulates a maximum 8 hours of C.E. (1 C.E. credit = 1 Hour) earned in one day.

How can I provide feedback on courses?

You have the opportunity to submit your feedback through surveys after your courses. While not mandatory, we encourage you to participate and help guide future speaker and course selections. CDA also sends attendees a survey to capture their feedback on the overall convention experience. 

When will the C.E. transcripts be available?

C.E. transcripts from the September 2022 convention will be made available to licensed attendees through on or before October 3, 2022. Be sure to hold on to the three-digit code provided at courses, should it be needed to confirm C.E. 

If your courses are not listed on your transcript by October 3, please contact us. 

Once your C.E. is available, here's how to access it: 

  1. Visit and create an account if you don't already have one.
  2. Under "My Account," go to "Show Transcripts."
  3. Filter your transcripts by the event and event date. For livestream courses, select the date range.
  4. Follow the prompts to review and print your C.E. certificate. 

Important Note: CDA follows the Dental Board of California C.E. provider requirements in issuing C.E. credits for license renewals. Information contained in promotional and electronic materials is subject to change and allowances for inaccuracies, omissions or modifications are not available.
