Massachusetts Board of Registration in Dentistry initiative effective January 1, 2016, is random audits of individual license holders for Continuing Education Credit (CE/CEU) compliance. As you know, you are required to maintain documentation of the CEUs you have taken for each renewal cycle. Licensees selected at random will shortly begin receiving correspondence from the Board requesting documentation of the CEU compliance you listed on your last license renewal application.
Please contact us for your Infection Control, OSHA, Pain Management and all other Risk Prevention course needs.
