3 CEUs – good for the whole dental team
This 3-hour live webinar is an adaptation of the much longer live class that we have offered in-person at the school in the past.
Live webinars are interactive and as such, are live credits, not distance learning. Anyone registered for this live webinar will receive instructions for how to sign in to the webinar. You will need speakers to hear the instructor; it is ideal if you have a webcam and microphone so you can interact with him. Most laptops, tablets and smartphones have these features. If you do not have a microphone, you can call in to the webinar to speak or you can ask a question in live chat.
