Continuing Education

As professionals, we are obligated to practice the concept of lifelong learning – The society we serve demands nothing less of us.

The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine Continuing Dental Education Center provides the tri-state area's dental community with quality, timely and innovative continuing dental education programs.

The University of Pittsburgh is an American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (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.

Please see our Course List.

The Edward J. Forrest Continuing Education Center, as well as our 13 off-campus sites, offer excellent resources in which to gain required professional information and knowledge about best practices in dental medicine. One of our charges is to “provide continuing dental education to the profession.”

In this profound period of change, we shall provide educational experiences that will meet the individual needs of our profession.
