ADA CERP FACTS
The role of ADA CERP is to evaluate providers of continuing dental education (CE) and assist state boards and other organizations that have CE requirements to identify CE providers whose activites are acceptable for credit. The ADA CERP does not approve the specific courses or the credit hours that recognized providers offer.

The ADA CERP evaluates providers of continuing dental education in 15 aspects of CE program quality. Only providers that can meet ADA CERP standards and procedures are granted approval and are authorized to use the ADA CERP logo and recognition statement. Once approved, providers are held accountable for maintaining those same high standards through periodic reevaluation.

Currently, there are 394 ADA CERP recognized providers at the national level, including 39 ADA constituent societies and 11 component societies, 66 dental/medical schools, universities and colleges, and 55 national dental organizations and dental specialty societies and dental associations and 36 dental education companies. In addition, authorization has been granted to ADA constituent (state) dental societies and participating specialty organizations recognized by ADA CERP to extend approval to their component (local) societies and affiliates, respectively. Through the extended approval process, 124 dental societies have been recognized.

Of the U.S. licensing jurisdictions that have currently implemented CE requirements for licensure renewal of dentists and allied staff, all accept the credits offered by ADA CERP. However, each licensing jurisdiction may have additional criteria that must be met.

The Academy of General Dentistry accepts credits from ADA CERP nationally recognized providers toward the FAGD and MAGD awards.

All CE providers that meet the eligibility requirements may apply for ADA CERP approval. Participating providers pay an application fee and an annual fee.

ADA CERP does not maintain a registry of CE credits. It is the responsibility of the CE provider to maintain records of participants in its educational activities. It is the responisibility of participants to retain documentation verifying partiipation in CE activites and to submit copies to their individual licensing boards as required.

DENTAL CONTINUING EDUCATION
DENTAL CE - SAMPLE COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Antimicrobials in Dentistry                                                              
Our antimicrobials course reviews their development and their place in the dental field. Our goal is to help you not only select appropriate antibiotics in terms of potency against oral pathogens, but also to balance that potency against possible toxicity & hypersensitivity reactions. This course helps you
  • Classify antibiotics according to their effect on target pathogens and range of activity so that you will quickly bring odontogenic infections under control.
  • Refresh your knowledge of penicillin and the best alternatives when penicillin cannot be prescribed.
  • Be prepared to recognize when antifungal agents are required.
  • Be prepared to manage patients who need antibiotic prophylaxis for endocarditis and those who are taking antibiotics prescribed for medical conditions.


Clark Class II Restorations
Posterior composites — even 25 years after their introduction — remain unpredictable. Compared to amalgam restorations, posterior composites show significantly higher failure rates. They cost more, they take longer to place, they have more post-operative symptoms — and they leak, stain, chip and cause food impaction.
Dr. David Clark will discuss — and demonstrate — a technique that addresses the most serious shortcomings listed above, and he will provide a viable alternative that utilizes innovative preparation and filling techniques.
Participants will learn the following:
• How to minimize fractures using the latest evolution in preparation design.
• The advantages of minimally traumatic vs. minimally invasive dentistry.
• A new, single load filling technique that can be used to create an incredibly durable, seamless restorations.


Hard and Soft Tissue Laser Techniques
Dr. Lou Graham and Dr. David Little demonstrate some of the many uses for laser technology in clinical dentistry. Dr. Graham will utilize the laser to improve the impression procedure for indirect restorative preparations, and Dr. Little will demonstrate the uses of a laser for treating oral infections, such as apthous ulcers, and herpetic lesions, as well as performing a quick and painless frenectomy, and a procedure to uncover implants. Discussion will center on the value of having laser technology available to perform faster, more efficient and profitable procedures with an excellent return on investment.
