Continuing Dental Education Programs


Continuing education is offered to graduates of professional programs as an ongoing commitment to professional development. The first continuing dental education program presented by the College of Dentistry was in 1953. Since then, there has been an increasing awareness of the need for continuing education to become a part of the lifelong educational experience of all health professionals. As a result, there has been a steady increase in the quality and number of courses presented by the College of Dentistry, as well as a greater distribution of meeting sites throughout Tennessee and Arkansas. Due to popular demand, the majority of courses presented are in the clinical sciences, with more emphasis now being placed upon those requiring clinical and/or laboratory participation. As resources permit, a series of courses have been planned for live video conferencing throughout the Mid-South utilizing facilities available on The University of Tennessee Health Science Center Memphis campus.

Participants of all University of Tennessee sponsored continuing education courses earn CEU (Continuing Education Units) credit, which is awarded by institutions to those who have satisfied certain regional and national accreditation requirements.
