Dentist CE: Dental Continuing Ed Plans for 2010

Continuing dental education plans for 2010When it comes to continuing dental education, over half of dentists say they plan to do more clinical CE this year. The average dentist expects to complete over 50 hours of clinical dental CE in 2010.

Even in the present economic climate, dental marketing and management education is somewhat less important to dentists. Only about one in three dentists plans to do additional dental management and/or marketing CE this year.

Here are some comments from dentists about dental continuing education:

  • “I always do more than I plan and I have never been sorry about CE.” (Illinois dentist)
  • “No more cosmetic dentistry CE! It is getting redundant and boring.” (California dentist)
  • “There will be some overlap between the managing and the marketing education. I need a more inviting dental website presence on the web.” (Oklahoma dentist)
  • “With the economy in the dumpster and the recession clearly STILL in progress, there is no time better than the present to increase our marketing and management education at my office.” (Ohio prosthodontist)
  • Dental marketing CE includes two-hour monthly training with The Wealthy Dentist University marketing materials and TWDU marketing meeting in October.” (Texas dentist)

Online Continuing Education: Most Dentists Say Yes

In this survey, we asked dentists if they have used the Internet as part of their formal dental continuing education. The slight majority (57%) said yes, while 43% of dentists still complete their dental CE hours the old-fashioned way. Online Continuing Education: Dental Survey Results

Geography plays a critical role in how likely dentists are to go online for their continuing education hours. Though the majority of urban dentists only attend seminars and classes in person, a mere 8% of rural dentists reported the same thing. To get the high-quality dental continuing education they want and need, most rural dentists go online.

For more insight into what our respondents are thinking, check out their comments!

  • “I enjoy attending sessions in person, but I like the convenience of online CDE.” (General dentist, rural Arizona)
  • “I focus on several-high end academy meetings. The online CE that I have seen has little to offer me.” (General dentist, suburban Washington)
  • “My online continuing education went well. I will do it again.” (General dentist, rural Minnesota)
  • “Online classes were easy and rewarding. In addition, dental conventions are also a great place to log many CE hours.” (General dentist, suburban Oregon)
