ADA CERP Certification

The University of Minnesota School of Dentistry is an American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) Recognized Provider. ADA CERP is a service of the ADA 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.
