Because credit is earned on an hour-per-hour basis, your credit will reflect the hours that you attend the program. However, if you are taking this module in order to complete the “Certificate Program in Contemporary Restorative and Esthetic Dentistry” you will need to complete all of the hours listed the module. If you miss part of a module, you will need to make up the credits. Please keep in mind, especially when making your travel arrangements, that this module is offered on an alternating year basis.

What to Wear

We suggest that you bring a jacket or sweater to help you adjust to the seemingly inevitable changes in meeting room temperature.

A full refund will be issued if you cancel at least one month (30 total days) before the program. If you cancel less than 30 days prior to the program $595 will be deducted from your refund. For registrations charged to your credit card the refund will be credited to your account. No cash refunds will be issued on charged registrations.
