Ohio Dental Continuing Education Requirements (Click Here): 

Pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Sections 4715.141, 4715.25, and 4715.53 licensed dentists (40 hours), dental hygienists (24 hours), and dental assistant radiographers (2 hours) are required to obtain continuing education (CE) in order to renew their Ohio licenses. Currently, dentists and dental hygienists must complete CE that reflects appropriate didactic and clinical training for subject matter as defined by the American Dental Association’s (ADA) definition of dentistry, which states in pertinent part:

”Dentistry is defined as the evaluation, diagnosis, prevention and/or treatment (nonsurgical, surgical or relate procedures) of diseases, disorders and/or conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and/or the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body…”

Therefore, course content must comply with the guidelines set forth in Ohio Revised Code Section 4715.141(A)(1) to (A)(7).  Those guidelines are as follows:

   (1) Competency in treating patients who are medically compromised or who experience medical emergencies during the course of dental treatment;
   (2) Knowledge of pharmaceutical products and the protocol of the proper use of medications;
   (3) Competence to diagnose oral pathology; 
   (4) Awareness of currently accepted methods of infection control; 
   (5) Basic medical and scientific subjects including, but not limited to, biology, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, and  pharmacology; 
   (6) Clinical and technological subjects including, but not limited to, clinical techniques and procedures, materials, and equipment; 
   (7) Subjects pertinent to health and safety. 

Examples of course content which will not be considered acceptable for CE credit are; money management, personal finance or business, basic educational or cultural subjects not related to direct patient care, teaching of the use of the Internet, general physical fitness or personal health issues, presentations by political or public figures, motivational courses, or alternative medicine/theory which has no scientific basis, etc.

The Board has determined that the intent of dental and dental hygiene CE is to improve the clinical application of dentistry and dental hygiene to the citizens of the state of Ohio.  Pursuant to Ohio Administrative Code Section 4715-8-01: 

“Acceptable continuing education for all Ohio licensees is defined as educational and scientific courses given by board-approved sponsors consisting of activities designed to review existing concepts and techniques, to convey information beyond the basic dental education and to update knowledge on advances in scientific, non-clinical and clinical practice related subject matter, including ethics, regulatory compliance, risk management, nutrition, and  evidence-based dentistry wherein the objective is to improve the knowledge, skills and ability of the individual to provide the highest quality of service to the public and the profession.”

Additionally, dentists and dental hygienists who take the same exact course more than once during a biennium will only be permitted to claim the total CE hours for the first completion of the course. 

CE must be taken from a Board-approved or Board-accepted sponsor.  There are two (2) types of Board-approved CE providers; Permanent and Biennial Sponsors.  CE courses from the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) and Academy of General Dentistry Program Approval for Continuing Education (AGD PACE) providers offering CE is Board-accepted so long as the providers remain in good standing, are in compliance with relevant recognition standards, and the guidelines set forth in Ohio’s Dental Practice Act (Chapter 4715. of Ohio Revised and Administrative Codes).  Listings of approved ADA CERP and AGD PACE  providers are available on-line at www.ada.org or www.agd.org.

100% of your CE may be taken in either directly interactive presentation or supervised self-instruction formats.   

CE may be taken in ANY of the following categories of credit NOT to exceed the maximum number of hours indicated.

2018-2019 Biennium

  2. Opioid prescribing education – 2.0 hours minimum, No maximum (This requirement is optional for 2018-2019 but will be mandatory beginning with the 2020-2021 biennium)
