ADA CE Online celebrates subscription service anniversary

August 19, 2019

By Kimber Solana

The ADA CE Online 1-year subscription program, an effort to simplify the purchase process for online continuing education for dentists and their dental team, turns 1 this September.

ADA CE Online logoAs of August, the program has more than 2,000 subscribers who receive unlimited access to ADA CE Online. The subscription service, which is available for individual or group purchase, gives users access to all CE Online Library courses for a year after a one-time payment.    

“As a busy dentist, practice owner and parent, there are many days where there are not enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished,” said Dr. Nanette Tertel, a member of the ADA Committee on Annual Meetings and chair of scientific programs for the ADA FDI World Dental Congress in San Francisco. “Time is a valuable commodity. I feel it is very exciting that the entire ADA CE Library is available any time I am able to fit excellent continuing education into a busy schedule.”
Courses available in the CE Online Library include topics on clinical dentistry, implantology, practice management, restorative dentistry and JADA CE.

“If I am unable to attend my local society’s live CE course, or if there is that one topic I couldn’t fit in my schedule at [the ADA’s annual meeting], I can search the ADA CE Library for the topic or speaker and take a course in the comfort of my home or office,” Dr. Tertel said. “I am able to take courses from nationally known speakers in dentistry, but also, included in my subscription, I am able to keep up on the latest research published in JADA and receive continuing education credits.”

Individual subscriptions are $119 for ADA members; $179 for nonmembers. All CE credits are attributed to the name on the ADA account and are stored in their online transcript.

Group subscriptions for up to five users are $499 for ADA members; $749 for nonmembers. To receive the ADA member group price, the purchaser must be a member. The other users do not need to be ADA members or have an ADA account. Each user in the group subscription can sign up for an ADA account to access their own CE transcript.

After a subscription purchase, all “register” buttons will switch to “start course.” The one-year access begins on the date of purchase and does not auto-renew.
ADA CE Online courses will still be available for individual purchase. Subscriptions can be canceled any time. However, those who cancel will be charged for each course completed while using the subscription.
Use the discount code “MEETINGSEPT5” to receive $20 off the subscription price.
