Mission and Goals Statement
The mission of the Dentistry Today Continuing Education (CE) Program is to provide accurate, science-based information of clinical relevance in a publication format, providing the opportunity for dentists to earn CE credits in the convenience of their home or office. Further, the Program shall provide a peer review process to ensure validity of the information presented, a testing mechanism to assess the participants’ knowledge and understanding of the information presented, a grading scale to provide feedback to participants regarding satisfactory or unsatisfactory knowledge of the topic, and an evaluation mechanism to determine participants’ level of satisfaction with the presentation of the topic. The Program shall provide a quality educational experience and bring value to readers of the publication, while enhancing the publication’s role as a leading provider of dental information and education.
The goals of the Dentistry Today CE Program are to always ensure that content chosen and peer reviewed for use in the Program meets the highest possible level of science-based information, and that content shall be designed to improve the knowledge and skills of the clinician participant with the ultimate goal of raising the level and quality of patient care.
