Continuing Education Information
The American Academy of Periodontology is an ADA CERP® Recognized Provider.
ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry. Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition at ADA.org/CERP.
The American Academy of Periodontology designates this activity for 32.00 continuing education (CE) credits. These CE credits will not automatically be submitted to any state board. It is your responsibility to submit earned contact hours to the appropriate regulatory agency. Courses, designated as CE activities, meet the Dental Board of California’s (DBC) requirements for CE. However, CE credits issued for participation in the CE activities may not apply towards license renewal in all jurisdictions. It is the responsibility of each participant to verify the CE requirements of his/her licensing regulatory agency. Attendees should retain a copy of this document for their records.
The educational methods to be used for this meeting include live lecture sessions involving case studies, innovations or advances in clinical concepts and techniques, or interactive, hands-on workshops.
The AAP cautions participants in CE courses about the potential risks of using limited knowledge when incorporating new techniques and procedures in their practice, especially when the course has not provided supervised clinical experience.
Dress Code and Temperature
Attendees are encouraged to wear business casual attire. In November high temperatures in Austin average around 21°C/71°F, with lows around 10°C/50°F.
