Here to serve the dental community

We are re-opening for in-person/on campus courses in Summer 2021.

The Continuing Dental Education office welcomes Dr. Sherwin Arman as our new director. In addition to this new role, Dr. Arman will continue as the Director of the UCLA Dentistry’s Orofacial Pain Program.

After more than a decade at UCLA Dentistry, Dr. Todd Schoenbaum has taken on a new position and challenge. We are grateful to for his leadership and guidance.

UCLA is widely recognized as the preeminent continuing dental education provider. We understand the needs of clinicians: from in-depth hands-on training programs, to the latest scientific and clinical breakthroughs. Our courses are evidence-backed, unbiased, and presented by top clinicians and educators – covering a wide-scope of clinical topics and procedures.

We are committed to providing you with access to the best instructors, latest technologies, and highest quality educational experiences. Hundreds of participants attend our courses each year; held mostly on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles and at destination locations like Hawaii and Napa Valley.

Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge, skills, and experience to be more productive and successful, with a class schedule that minimizes disruption to your practice. We have trained some of the most sought after clinicians in the world, and we look forward to helping you achieve your professional goals.
