Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
DOCS Education, a continuing education organization for the dental community, launched a free online continuing education (CE) series Tuesday with November’s course, "Pediatric Sedation Dentistry: Help for the Caries Crisis?" The course provides one hour of PACE/AGD-approved CE at no charge to dentists.
Providing CE to dentists for over a decade, DOCS Education’s faculty felt the need for a broader range of free continuing education. Through the Incisor—the organization’s weekly newsletter covering the industry’s newest topics as well as case studies from committed colleagues—subscribers can register for each month’s featured course.
November’s course explains why the pediatric caries rate is rising and how dentists can respond to the crisis. The presentation is offered by Dr. Roger Sanger, a prominent DOCS Education faculty member and acclaimed pediatric dentist. Each month’s online course is presented by a different DOCS Education faculty or staff member and includes a short quiz at the conclusion.
“These courses are extremely valuable to all dentists,” states Sanger. “Most of the topics covered in the series apply to dental professionals everywhere, including the caries crisis, which has become a pandemic.”
The caries crisis, new emergency medications and advances in pain control illustrate how dentistry continues to rapidly evolve. DOCS Education’s free online CE program aims to keep dentists current with the ever-changing industry.
