Series description

Current Concepts in Dentistry is one of the foremost programs in the field of dental continuing education. Each year, we provide guest lecturers who are outstanding leaders in their fields of expertise. The sessions are focused on current issues and advances you need to know about. This ADA CERP recognized program is a great opportunity to learn from four outstanding instructors, earn up to seven CE credits per day (28 credits over four days), and best of all: spend an extended weekend in the beautiful city of Victoria.



The University of Victoria 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.

The University of Victoria designates this activity for seven continuing education credits per day.
