The DALE Foundation has received Program Approval for Continuing Education (PACE) by the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD)*. The continuing education programs offered by AGD PACE providers are accepted by AGD for Fellowship, Mastership and membership maintenance credit. Additionally, many state dental boards recognize AGD PACE providers as meeting state requirements for continuing dental education.
"The DALE Foundation is proud to be approved as an AGD PACE provider," said Cindy Durley, M.Ed., MBA, Executive Director of the DALE Foundation. "This industry approval underscores our commitment to providing quality continuing education and is one more way we assure our learners they are receiving excellent review courses and study aids."
The DALE Foundation, the official affiliate of the Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. (DANB), offers interactive online review courses, practice tests and other study aids to help dental assistants prepare for DANB exams and certification. Additionally, the DALE Foundation offers dental office manager courses and other continuing education courses.
"PACE approval is a rigorous process that establishes standards of excellence, and also determines whether approved organizations continue to uphold quality standards," Durley explained, noting that the DALE Foundation's current term of approval extends from Sept. 1, 2013, to Aug. 31, 2017.
