The North Carolina Area Health Education Centers are an ADA CERP Recognized Provider. 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 the Commission for Continuing Education Provider Recognition at ADA.org/CERP.

The North Carolina Area Health Education Centers designates this activity for up to 6.0 hours of continuing education credits.

Dental Institutions providing dental education have an obligation to disseminate new knowledge related to dental practice. In doing so, some information or presentations may include controversial materials or commercial references. The Charlotte AHEC office acknowledges that there is potential risk to participants using limited knowledge when incorporating new techniques and procedures into their practices, especially when the continuing education program has not provided them with supervised clinical experience in the techniques or procedures to ensure that they have attained competence. Sponsorship of continuing education courses by the Charlotte AHEC office does not imply endorsement of a particular philosophy, product or procedure by this institution.

Disclosure Statement/Conflict of Interest:
In accordance with the ADA CERP Standard V., everyone involved in planning or presenting this educational activity will be required to disclose any relevant financial relationships with commercial interests and this information will be made available to participants at the start of the activity. As a continuing education provider, the Charlotte AHEC office is responsible for ensuring the content, quality and scientific integrity of all continuing dental education activities for which credit is provided. The Charlotte AHEC office is also responsible for taking steps to protect against and/or disclose any conflict of interest of the faculty/instructors presenting those courses.
