Continuing Education Credit Information

One hour of continuing education (CE) credit is offered for every hour of program attendance. Continuing education credit can be recorded on the CE Form included in your symposium registration packet. One copy of the completed CE Form should be returned to the continuing education counter located in the registration area. Be sure to retain a copy of this completed form for your records; you will receive no further documentation. The American Academy of Periodontology will maintain one copy of the form for 4 years but will not send CE information or CE forms to state boards.


CE credit awarded for participation in a course or activity may not apply toward licensing renewal in all states. It is the responsibility of each participant to verify the requirements of his or her state licensing board. Meeting attendees are responsible for ensuring that their education credits are current and on file with their respective state board or other licensing/regulatory agency.
