Behind the times and not up-to-date on current dental issues, that’s where they’d be without continuing education.
One dentist, who does one hundred hours of continuing education a year says, “The State shouldn’t have to dictate a minimum number of hours of continuing education, but dentists should take much more that fifteen hours mandated by the State of Virginia!”
