While earning continuing education (CE) credits may be necessary to renew DANB certification or meet state requirements, the value of CE extends beyond the number of credits earned.

DANB certificants and other dental assistants say they enjoy earning CE for many reasons, including keeping up with changes in the industry and a love of lifelong learning.

There are numerous other benefits to offering CE opportunities to the dental team, such as improving day-to-day operations, team-building, increasing office efficiency, giving staff the opportunity to grow in their careers, and making team members feel appreciated and engaged.

To maximize the benefits of CE, it’s important to select courses that are interesting but also challenging. Of course, cost and convenience also factor into the overall value of CE.

It’s not always possible to take time out of the workweek to attend a dental meeting or CE course; in these cases, e-learning courses, like those offered through the DALE Foundation, may be the answer.

To get started, check out our list of CE courses or visit our CE map to learn what’s required in each state.
