Continuing Education

Dentistry is a lifelong learning profession. Indiana dentists are required by law to maintain and build upon their knowledge in the dental field by completing 20 hours of continuing education every licensure period. The Indiana Dental Association offers approximately 100 hours of continuing education to its members annually through its Center for Excellence in Continuing Education, Midwest Dental Assembly course work and various local society and study club meetings. Stay in the loop on IDA’s Continuing Education activities by friending INDental CE on Facebook!
