The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry (ABPD) has been named as a recognized provider in the American Dental Association (ADA) Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) effective November 2016.

Established in 1993, the ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) provides ADA members and the dental community a mechanism to select quality continuing dental education with confidence and promotes the continuous improvement of continuing dental education both nationally and globally. 

ADA CERP is managed by the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition. Through an application and review process, the Commission evaluates and recognizes institutions and organizations that provide continuing dental education. Continuing education (CE) providers are evaluated in 14 aspects of CE program quality defined in the ADA CERP Recognition Standards and Procedures. Providers approved through the program are designated as ADA CERP Recognized Providers. Only providers that meet the CERP Recognition Standards are granted approval and are authorized to use the ADA CERP logo and recognition statement. Once approved, providers are held accountable for maintaining those same high standards through periodic reevaluation. 

ABPD’s Renewal of Certification Process (ROC-P), provides Diplomates an opportunity to acquire CE annually. One (1) credit hour is awarded for each online Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) module completed and ten (10) credit hours are awarded upon successful completion of the Renewal of Certification Examination due every ten (10) years in a Diplomate’s certification cycle.

To access ABPD CE activities, login to your personalized ROC-P dashboard. CE certificates of participation can be found in the ‘My Transcript’ section of the dashboard.
