The Five Best Sources for Free Online Dental Courses
Continuing your dental education is one of the best ways to advance your career in dentistry. But if you’ve already got all the certification and official education you need, and don’t need to earn any hours, there are always places to go to learn new procedures. (If you do, then we’ve got that more than covered.)
In addition to the many courses that can be taken at sites that require a membership, many manufacturer and industry sites provide an offering of free courses in order for professionals to learn about new products and procedures that can help keep skills sharp. Here are the four best sites that offer courses for free.
Crest & Oral B
If you’re a dental assistant or dental hygienist, then Crest and Oral B have sections of their continuing education materials devoted to your practice. There you can learn more about everything from treating patients with Autism to information and practices related to Forensic Dentistry. More importantly, you can also access academic articles on the latest findings and patient education downloads that can help you get the point across to the people you help each day.
Here you can find quite a bit of information related to implants, veneers and chairside technique. A lot of this information is suited for practicing dentists, but you’ll find excellent patient education resources and clinical product tips that might make your job easier.
American Dental Association
Not all of the American Dental Association’s online dental courses are free, but the ones that are can be great for both practitioners and office managers. They offer courses that cover managing stress in a dental office and how to treat diabetic patients.
Nobel Biocare offers online courses aimed at assistants and other professionals that specialize in surgery, but keeps a series of lectures available to the dental community for free through iTunesU. These courses cover surgical techniques and prosthetics.
This resource out of the UK hosts free online webinars that can be viewed from anywhere, to include your home, or your practice. You’ll have to register and commit to a date and time, so they’re a little less convenient, but they cover areas including resin restorations and restoration of endontically treated teeth.
But remember, if you’re still in need CE hours for your practice in Australia as are now required by the Dental Board of Australia, you’ll need to choose a provider with the resources to provide you with the best training available. You’ll need one with experts that have the experience that can guide your practice in best techniques and incomparable training. Choose your program wisely, it can make or break your practice.
