We are aware that you have many options for your continuing education (CE) needs and that you are likely making all of your CE choices with your learning goals and state board requirements for re-licensure foremost in mind. Over the years, we have been adding new content to our CE library (dentalcetoday.com) so that you can earn at least some of your CE credits conveniently in the comfort of your office or home. Dr. Phil Bonner, our CE editor, and I continue to select content that will be of keen interest to any clinicians wishing to participate. Our goal is to present a balanced selection of topics that are clinically and scientifically relevant to the work that you do. As such, Dentistry Today is proud to be an “Approved PACE Program Provider” and an “ADA CERP Recognized Provider.”
Completing some of your required hours of CE by reading our monthly CE article and then taking and successfully passing the short quiz can be both an affordable way to gain some CE credits as well as a real time-saver! It is our opinion that a majority of your postgraduate curriculum should include dental meetings that make live lectures and hands-on programs available for credit. These should always be an integral part of CE, and, along with the monthly peer-reviewed CE articles presented in Dentistry Today, one can easily meet all of his or her CE needs and requirements. We sincerely hope that you take advantage of the CE opportunity in every issue of Dentistry Today!
This month, in addition to the clinical case report articles written by a great lineup of esteemed clinician-authors, including our cover-featured star, Dr. Sam Simos, we have Dr. Jason Flores’ CE article, which discusses the proper use of local anesthesia and sedation in patients who present with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This peer-reviewed article is available for 2 FAGD/MAGD CEUs.
We hope that you enjoy and benefit from this exciting issue of Dentistry Today!
