Continuing Education


  • Fri, Sep 29, 2023 | 8:15 AM - Fri, Sep 29, 2023 | 3:00 PM


The Dental Board of California requires all licensed dental professionals (DDS, DMD, RDA, RDH, etc.) to take approved CE courses in Infection Control and California Dental Practice Act every two years for license renewal.  Cal-OSHA requires employers to provide training in Bloodborne Pathogens, Hazard Communication, General Safety, and Emergency Response to occupationally exposed employees upon hire and at least annually thereafter (refer to your Exposure Control Plan to identify occupationally exposed employees).  These three courses are packed with practical information in an enjoyable atmosphere.  Bring the whole office for a productive day of learning and fun.
