The ISDA offers many continuing education opportunities for dental professional throughout the year. Due to COVID-19 and state mandates many 2020 events have been cancelled or moved. We will be sure to keep you up to date on these changes.

The CE Requirements for re-licensure are 30 hours, 1 of which needs to be related to safe prescribing of Opioids.  There is no requirement related to the number of hours that must be in person learning vs. on-line, so all requirements can be met using on-line CE.

The opioid prescribing requirement applies to all dentists, regardless of specialty or whether or not you prescribe opioids.  Those who attended the Harold Crossly classes or Ryan Hampton’s class at the 2019 ISDA Annual Session have met the opioid requirement.

ADA offers a free online class that also meets the Opioid prescribing requirement, which is available through their collaboration with the Providers’ Clinical Support System at
