The Metropolitan Denver Dental Society makes every effort to present high caliber speakers in their respective areas of expertise. Courses of MDDS are offered as information only and not as financial, accounting, legal or other professional advice. Attendees must consult with their own professional advisers. In addition, each participant must decide the merit and practicality of the material presented. The ideas and comments expressed during the courses are not necessarily endorsed by or are those of MDDS. MDDS warns attendees about the potential risks of using limited knowledge when integrating new techniques into your practices.
The Metropolitan Denver Dental Society is an 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.
Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition at ADA.org/CERP. The number of CE credits are listed for each course. In addition, MDDS credits are approved by the AGD for Fellowship and Mastership credit.
Continuing education courses may not apply toward license renewal/CE requirements in all states. It is the responsibility of each attendee to verify the requirements of his/her licensing board or the organization to which he/she must submit proof of continuing education. Please check with your state board or other applicable organization if you have questions.
