Continuing education: the good, the bad and the ugly

Christensen GJ. J Am Dent Assoc 2004; 135(7):921-924.

Abstract: Dental CE is mandatory for ongoing competency in dental practice. There are numerous methods of obtaining CE, some of which are highly successful and others that are of minimal value. In this article, I have described and prioritized the various methods of obtaining CE according to their effectiveness as I perceive it. CE in dentistry can be enjoyable, will allow dentists to serve their patients at a higher level of competency and will keep practitioners mentally stimulated as they learn new concepts and techniques.
