Continuing Education

Accreditation

All state boards of Dentistry require Dentists, Dental Hygienists and Dental Assistants to complete various hours of continuing education annually in accordance with their state's dental rules and regulations for licensing.

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Dentistry is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider. ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry. The current term of approval extends from November 2019 to December 2023.

For more information, please contact CDE Director Lynne Moore at dlmoore@uthsc.edu.
