Continuing Education

Dentistry is a fast growing and changing career field. Let the UMKC School of Dentistry continuing education programs help keep your clinical skills relevant and in-demand as the industry changes. The School of Dentistry has several online and onsite programs to fit your needs.

Our Continuing Education programs are designed to meet the educational needs of working dental hygienists and dentists. UMKC School of Dentistry is a partner with ADEA and the AAL in sponsoring the Institute for Allied Health Educators (IAHE) – a professional development program for allied health and health profession faculty.

Professionals can browse course offerings online and learn immediately what fits your needs. You can also stay connected by checking your continuing education credits online.


Continuing education credits issued for participation in the CE activity may not apply toward license renewal in all states. It is the responsibility of each participant to verify the requirements of his/her state licensing board(s).
