ADAA Continuing Education Catalog



ADAA’s education library carries an extensive list of over 60 courses and continues to grow. We offer continuing dental education in hard copy or online for the dental team in areas of radiology, infection control, medical emergencies, business management, pharmacology, and much more.

Upon successful completion of ADAA courses, dental assistants earn credits for certification and most state requirements.

As of Jan. 1, 2012 all online ADAA continuing education courses will be available free of charge to ADAA Members.
