Continuing Dental Education

Manager, Office of Continuing Dental Education

The Faculty of Dentistry Office for Continuing Dental Education provides continuing education courses for dentists, dental hygienists, and other allied dental health personnel. The principal objective of these courses is to assist in the maintenance of competence for the dental profession. Presentations by members of faculty, local resource people, and visiting clinicians include the review of basic knowledge and introduction of new concepts and techniques. Most of the continuing dental education programs are offered in Halifax, but some are also presented in other centres. The content, location, and scheduling of the various courses are based on advice received from professional associations, assessment of client needs, current trends, and the Faculty Continuing Dental Education Committee. Tuition fees are cost related and are set individually for each course. Current Dental and Dental Hygiene students are welcome to attend local lecture courses at no charge.
