Florida dentists are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of approved continuing education in dental-related subjects each biennium. You can earn up to 20 hours of CE by attending the Florida Dental Convention.

The Florida Board of Dentistry (BOD) accepts up to three hours of credit biennially for practice-management courses that address: principles of ethical practice-management, substance abuse, effective communication with patients, time management and burnout prevention instruction. Dentists who have questions about whether the BOD will accept a particular course should visit the BOD website, or call 850.245.4474.

The Florida Dental Association is approved as a continuing education sponsor by the Florida Board of Dentistry. The Florida Dental Association 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.

Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition at ADA.org/CERP.
