Expand your Dental Knowledge Through Online Education
No matter what country you work in, the expectation of your patients is that you - as a dentist or hygienist – are highly educated and keep up with the latest scientific literature. And as many of you well know, in a busy practice this is extremely hard to do. The typical approach has been to participate in a weekend class or lecture, go to lectures at a dental convention, join in a study club with monthly lectures, or return to school for additional training. All of these approaches consume what little free time we have as professionals. So what is a dental clinician to do to pursue continuing education?
The answer is online education. With the advent of computers and the internet as well as advances in media software it is now possible to take courses that fit into the time frame of the dental clinician and not the other way around. And that is the beauty of online education that is available from a variety of sources. With CERP and other national certifications it is possible to take at your leisure and receive certification that can be displayed for patients to see in the office or posted to an online web site resume.
Online courses are offered by academics and practicing clinicians that are heavily credentialed in the subject matter that they are discussing. So on-line education is the way to pursue additional knowledge in the field of Dentistry, get credit, and show patients that you are involved in the scientific advances in Dentistry.
