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 will I be able to 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 in surveys to help guide future speaker and course selections..
