The COVID-19 pandemic has put in-person continuing dental education sessions and seminars on hold. However, we have been able to adapt and conquer that blockage. With the ongoing pandemic, it was key that we make sure we don’t skip and lose out on important continuing medical education. After all, our patients’ health and well-being relies on it.
For this year, we want to make sure you are aware of some upcoming educational sessions to keep you in check for providing exceptional care for your patients now and well into the future. Here is what we have coming up this year for virtual and in person continuing dental education options.

There will be some continuing education events that can be offered both in person or virtual. If you choose an in person route, you can rest easy knowing we are taking all preventive measures, such as wearing a mask, washing our hands, using hand sanitizer and distancing.
