Stay ahead of the curve.
CDA Presents lets you fulfill continuing education in a fun, exciting atmosphere — at record speed. Our workshops, free lectures and other C.E. opportunities are the most convenient way for you to meet your license renewal requirements.

C.E. Requirements
To help you comply with the Dental Board of California regulations for C.E., CDA identifies each course as either "Core," "20%" or "non-eligible."

Core – Courses that directly enhance the licensee's knowledge, skill and competence in the provision of service to patients or the community. Core courses must comprise at least 80 percent of the credits in a renewal cycle.

20% – Courses considered to be primarily of benefit to the licensee and improved functioning of the dental practice must comprise no more than 20 percent of a licensee's total required course unit credits for each license or permit renewal period.

Non-eligible – Courses considered to be of direct benefit to the licensee or outside the scope of dental practice in California.

Note: The Dental Board of California limits licensees to 8 hours of C.E. per day for license renewal.

C.E. Verification
Please keep in mind that courses displayed in the C.E. Pavilion are those that had any on site scan activity and do not guarantee credit. Official certificates are only granted for classes attended in full and are now available at

To better serve you, please continue to take the short surveys to give us feedback on the courses you took.
