North Carolina Dental Continuing Education Requirements (Click Here):

Continuing education became mandatory January 1, 1995. Every year, dentists must complete 15 hours and hygienists must complete 6 hours. The one-year period spans one calendar year (January to December being a calendar year).  New North Carolina Dental licensees are not required to get CE the first year they are licensed, but need to obtain the appropriate hours the following years (therefore if you were initially licensed in 2006 you will not need to take CE in 2006, but will be required to do so in 2007).  In addition to the mandatory CE, both dentists and hygienists are required to maintain current CPR. The number of CE hours completed each year is reported on the license renewal form. No documentation of course work will be sent to the Board’s office. Each person is responsible for maintaining his/her own documentation of CE courses completed “for at least two years and shall be produced upon request of the Board.”

New State Law Requires Opioid Prescribing Course (Link): As a condition of dental license renewal for 2018, all licensees who have a current DEA registration MUST complete an annual CE course of at least one hour that shall include, but not be limited to, instruction on controlled substance prescribing practice and controlled substance prescribing for chronic pain management.

Courses may be taken in-person or online. In those instances where the CE course awards more than one hour credit, licensees may apply the additional credit toward the general requirement of patient care and count all hours toward the 15 hour requirement necessary for license renewal.

The Board has determined that dentists may obtain any or all of their required 15 hours and hygienists may obtain any or all of their required 6 hours online or through correspondence courses which have post-tests and issue certificates of completion.
