Continuing Education Webinars

Take advantage of the ADA's free online continuing education courses covering the latest techniques for prescribing opioids safely and effectively. The webinars are:

  • free;
  • convenient to access;
  • tailored to pain management in dentistry; and
  • available to members and non-members alike.

Plus, the ADA CERP credential provides a sound basis for state regulatory agencies to accept the continuing education (CE) credit for licensure.

The ADA produces four webinars a year thanks, in part, to a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP).
