Previously Recorded Webcasts
A link to the recorded webcast presentations will be posted on our website Clinical Grand Rounds Recorded Sessions within a week of each session. When you view only this recorded version of a session, you may earn 1.5 hours of “elective” credit per session for Minnesota relicensure requirements. However, you will need to keep track of the date and time of your completion in case of a Board of Dentistry audit of your continuing dental education records.
PLEASE NOTE: When you attend a "live" presentation of Clinical Grand Rounds or a "live" webcast, you earn core continuing dental education credit in diagnosis and treatment planning and receive a certificate of attendance.
