Continuing Dental Education Requirements for the Dentist (video)

Dental CEThe average dentist completes at least 50 hours of dental continuing education each year, much more than mandated by state requirements.

“The orthodontic world is exploding with information and the state dental CE requirement is 20 hours a year,” complained an orthodontist who completes 120 hours of CE a year. “Hopelessly inadequate.”

“I teach about 125 hours a year (dental implants and bone grafting for GPs),” said another doctor. “I also take about 100 hours per year personally.”
