Contemporary health professions are marked by constant technological changes, innovations in health care delivery, new clinical procedures and an ever-increasing social awareness.
Such changes have accentuated the need for the professional to remain abreast of new developments by accepting the fundamental and lifelong responsibility for continuous study.
As a part of its obligation to the practicing profession, the Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry vigorously supports continuing dental education and offers a full range of programs.
Lectures, seminars and electronic distance learning about topics of current interest to dentists and dental auxiliaries are taught by TAMHSC-BCD faculty and other respected professionals.
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 to ADA CERP at www.ada.org/cerp.
The mission of the Department of Continuing Education, Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry is to promote the most advanced continuing education curriculum for all dental professionals, enabling them to achieve elevated levels of knowledge and competency and to promote public safety with the highest standard of care and service to their patients and community.
