As a dental assistant, your role is invaluable to the efficient running of the clinic. Professional development in your role is important so that you can keep on top of the latest innovations and guidelines that your clinic should implement. There a number of great places online and in person to gain your annual continuing education credits.

For you to stay in good standing, it is likely that your Province or State requires you to complete a set number of CE hours, CPR and renew your license. Please contact your local professional body to confirm what your requirements are.
