The Connecticut State Dental Association is proud to be a
recognized ADA CERP Provider.

These continuing education activities have been planned and implemented in accordance with the standards of the ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) through joint efforts between the CT State Dental Association and IMV Limited/

ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry. Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to ADA CERP at

Why ADA CERP is important when searching for CE:

  • Select quality CE with confidence.
  • CE providers are evaluated in 14 aspects of CE program quality by the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition.
  • All U.S. licensing jurisdictions with CE requirements for licensure renewal accept credits offered by ADA CERP recognized providers.
  • Once approved, providers are held accountable for maintaining high standards through periodic reevaluation.
