Where can I find acceptable Continuing Education for my CE requirement? 

The board requires 15 hours of CE (directly related to the clinical aspect of pediatric dentistry) to be completed and recorded in your dashboard by November 30, 2015.

Here are a few sites:

How to I enter the CE that I have completed? 

Login to your ABPD account.  On your "Welcome Page" you will see a "Go To ROC-P" button, click and you will be directed to your ROC-P dashboard.  The dashboard is your centralized location to access all parts of the ROC-P. Click on the "Add/View/Edit" button under Continuing Education and enter the courses.  

I took a course in December, what year do I receive credit for them since it is past the November 30th deadline? 

The CE hours can only be used in the year they were earned.  ABPD uses the month of December as a grace month and a Diplomate can contact Jasey at ABPD to arrange for an extension.

Example:  If a course is taken on December 4, 2015 they could not be used for the 2016 requirement. They could be applied to 2015 with an extension.  

How many CQI's do I have to take annually and how long do they take to complete?

Every Diplomate must successfully complete 2 CQI's every year.  A CQI could take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to complete.  

HOW do I ACCESS THE CQI's?

Login to your ABPD account.  On your "Welcome Page" you will see a "Go To ROC-P" button, click and you will be directed to your ROC-P dashboard.  The dashboard is your centralized location to access all parts of the ROC-P. Click on the "View CQI List" button under Continuous Quality Improvement and select from the list.  

Can I take more than the 2 CQI'S annually and when can I re-take one?

You can take as many as you would like.  The system does record 1 hour of CE per successful CQI in your transcript.  All completed CQI's will re-open 2 years from the completed date.
