We have released several new Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Modules for 2020. Renewal of Certification Process (ROC-P) is a continuous, rolling process documenting achievement in four critical areas of pediatric dentistry. Completion of the four areas is required of Time-limited Diplomates and strongly recommended for Unlimited Diplomates.
ROC-P is designed to meet rapidly changing science and technology head on, assisting Diplomates to provide the highest quality healthcare to patients. As part of ROC-P, Diplomates are required to complete 2 CQI modules per year, and are awarded 1 hour of Continuing Education credit for each module completed.
CQIs may be found on your Diplomate Dashboard, under the CM tab.
