The formal continuing education programs of the Yankee Dental Congress are ADA CERP approved and qualify for NBC continuing education credits. Upon completing courses at Yankee, Certified Dental Technicians (CDT) and Recognized Graduates (RG) should print a transcript of their courses at the CE Pavilion at Yankee, and submit this directly to the NBC. (Transcripts may also be downloaded from the www.yankeedental.com website) It is the responsibility of the technician wanting to receive approved credit to submit this documentation to NBC before their renewal period, while keeping a copy for their personal records. Yankee Dental Congress does not submit transcripts on your behalf.
DANB Certificants who attend or participate in Continuing Dental Education (CDE) courses sponsored by the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP), may be able to use these courses to renew their DANB Certification. It is the responsibility of the Certificant to ensure that courses they take meet DANB’s Recertification Requirements, and that the CDE credits are reported in the appropriate DANB CDE categories, as described in DANB’s Recertification Requirements. DANB does not accept general attendance and/or Exhibit Hall Floor attendance CDE credit.
A copy of DANB’s recertification requirements is available at: www.danb.org
For CDE questions contact DANB by phone at 1-800-367-3262.
