During this stressful and disquieting time, we at the New York State Dental Foundation understand how the current situation may affect your life and practice. As a small gesture of support, we are offering all our online courses (except the infection control/opioid bundle) at a discount of 50%. To take advantage of this opportunity, simply use the following codes:
NYS Mandated Infection Control Course : PAUSE
NYS Requirements for Prescribing Opioid Drugs: PAUSE1
Oral Cancer: Prevention and Early Detection: PAUSE2
We are currently offering the: Ethics and Jurisprudence for the Dental Practitioner for the flat fee of $30.00 for all NYS Licensed Dentists.
These coupons will be in place until the NYS "PAUSE" is lifted.
Some regulations restrict licensees to a certain percentage of self-study for continuing education requirements. In response to the evolving situation with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and for those licensees whose registrations are due to renew March 1-September 1, 2020, the Department will grant an adjustment to all licensees to complete up to 100% of the continuing education as self-study, so long as it is taken from a Department-approved provider and is in an acceptable subject area for the specific profession. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) is working closely with other New York State agencies and the Governor’s Office to tackle issues relating to COVID-19. Please continue to monitor the Department’s website for updated guidance.
(NYSDA members should refer often to nysdental.org/CONVID-19 for communications from their leadership.)
In the meantime, the NYSDA/Foundation offices are temporarily closed to ensure the safety of all staff and volunteers. What that means is for the time being, entry of CE credits may be delayed, although staff is entirely committed to trying to stay on top of these credits by working remotely to the extent possible.
We are all in this together. And we assure you we are doing everything possible to maintain and promote optimum communications and ongoing efficiencies.
