The average dentist completes at least 50 hours of dental continuing education each year, much more than mandated by state requirements.
“State CE requirements are ridiculously low,” said one dentist. “Illinois only requires 32 hours every two years, and they don’t all need to be health care related topics that might actually be something that would help you deliver better care for your patients.”
“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.”
