What is a Dental CE Academy?
By definition, an "academy" is an institution or society of higher learning, training in a special field and devoted to promote excellence and maintain standards in a particular field. Such an institution contains scholars and educators that enhance the education and professionalism of students that they instruct. In dentistry, the purpose of continuing education is to improve the professional abilities and standards of dentists engaged in clinical care, and protect their patients and the general public. Dental CE providers that rise to the standard of an academy must meet specific educational standards and be regularly reviewed and evaluated for excellence in education by state and national dental educational authorities. This validates the professionalism and quality of their continuing education standards and CE offerings.
