Course Check-in

Course check-in usually takes place on the 1st floor lobby of the dental school’s academic building (link to contact us page or directions & parking page). Please bring your enrollment confirmation letter, which you received after you registered, and items requested for the course.

Course Credits

Full attendance and course completion is required to receive credit. The Office of Continuing Dental Education (CDE) issues one credit for every one hour of course time that a participant completes, which is in accordance with the California State Board of Dental Examiners.

Participants who complete our courses receive credits approved by the California State Board of Dental Examiners and receive a certificate of completion at the end of each course. Participants who pre-register will be able to pick up their CDE certificates at the end of the day/program. We can submit requests for Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) credits on a credit per hour basis. We are part of the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program.
