A dental education opens up a world of professional opportunities.

In addition to private practice, today's dental school graduates can choose to work in hospital emergency rooms, conduct advanced laboratory research, teach future dentists or even travel the world with international health and relief organizations.

Continuing education provides dentists with opportunities to learn new skills, stay abreast of new technology or procedures, and increase their business acumen. And the ADA offers a multitude of CE opportunities – both in person and online.
