The only way to maintain and improve the quality of dental continuing education is by opening the review process to professional scrutiny online.
Studio City, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
RateCE.com is a service for dental healthcare providers who are making decisions about how to invest their time and money on seminars, lectures and meetings. The site is available on smartphones, tablets and laptop computers, enabling users to review and rate the course while they're still in attendance -- because immediacy is critical for accurate evaluations.
Professional continuing education is mandated by state law. To be effective, that continuing education must be scientifically valid and clinically applicable; but, to date, there are only limited ways for dental healthcare personnel to evaluate the quality of courses being offered -- in an unbiased manner, independent of sponsors and free online.
“The only way to maintain and improve the quality of dental continuing education is by opening the review process to professional scrutiny online,” said Dr. Laurence Barsh, Founder and CEO of RateCE,LLC. “For far too long, the review process has remained in control of the course sponsor without comments being available to attendees. We hope to change that with RateCE.com, so that dental healthcare providers will have the advantage of knowing how a course rates prior to attending.”
RateCE, LLC awards “Best Course” shields to sponsors whose courses consistently receive the highest rating from member dental professionals. In addition, RateCE.com has instituted a Top Course Award for 2014 , an Event Space that features brief educational videos from highly-rated seminar presenters, and a listing of the top rated courses of the week.
RateCE,LLC believes that patients should be knowledgeable about the continuing education experience of their dentists. Because of this, RateCE, LLC is providing marketing materials to member dentists in the form of office displays and literature, as well as an online profile of members who have participated in the review process that includes contact information, a biography, and a list of the courses and ratings which each member has attended and rated at RateCE.com.
There is no charge for this service to member dentists or listing course sponsors.
RateCE, LLC is located in Los Angeles, California and was developed and is maintained by Laurence I. Barsh, DMD. Inquiries can be made directly to Dr. Barsh by email, with the contact form at RateCE.com/contact or by phone at 855-5RATECE.
