Continuing Education Credits
The Metropolitan Denver Dental Society 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.
Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition at ADA.org/CERP.
MDDS designates this activity for a maximum of 18 continuing education credits. Please note: the number of CE credits are listed for each course.
In addition, MDDS credits are approved by the AGD for Fellowship and Mastership credit.
Unless otherwise noted, one clock hour equals one credit hour. Continuing education courses may not apply toward license renewal/CE requirements in all states. It is the responsibility of each attendee to verify the requirements of his/her licensing board or the organization to which he/she must submit proof of continuing education. Please check with your state board or other applicable organization if you have questions.
Receiving Verification of Attendance
All attendees who require proof of attendance for CE credits must collect the CE code that is read at the end of the course.
Following the convention, attendees may log on to rmdconline.com to print a CE verification document for each course they attended. CE verification documents will not print unless the attendee enters the correct CE code.
IMPORTANT NOTE: CE codes will be read at the end of each course and will not be given to attendees at any other time during or following the convention. Please collect and keep the CE code for each class you attend, whether you think you will need it or not.
The Metropolitan Denver Dental Society makes every effort to present high caliber speakers in their respective areas of expertise. Courses of MDDS are offered as information only and not as financial, accounting, legal or other professional advice. Attendees must consult with their own professional advisers. In addition, each participant must decide the merit and practicality of the material presented. The ideas and comments expressed during the courses are not necessarily endorsed by or are those of MDDS. MDDS warns attendees about the potential risks of using limited knowledge when integrating new techniques into your practices.
Child Attendance Policy
Scientific Sessions: In consideration of all convention attendees, children under the age of 14 are not allowed in the lecture rooms.
Expo Hall: Due to the presence of large, heavy equipment, medical instruments and numerous other products, all children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult while in the Expo Hall.
Parents taking children into the Expo Hall do so at their own risk.

Media Recording Policy
No audio, video, digital recording or photography of any courses or speaker slides is permitted other than by MDDS officially sanctioned vendors. This includes use of personal video cameras, tablets or cell phones by attendees to record speaker presentations in any manner.
