2018 ODA Leadership Institute

Continuing Education Information

ODA Leadership Institute is an official activity of the Ohio Dental Association. Speaker selection is based on expertise and presentation quality. Speaker participation at Annual Session neither implies nor reflects ODA endorsement. All seminars are offered as information only and not as financial, accounting, legal, or other professional advice. Persons attending seminars or reviewing handout materials need to consult their own professional advisors for advice. The views and opinions expressed by speakers do not necessarily reflect the policies or positions of the Ohio Dental Association.

The number of continuing education (CE) credits for each seminar is equal to the number of course hours for that class. However, not all course topics meet the mandatory requirement for renewal as mandated by the Ohio State Dental Board (OSDB) or other licensing agencies. It is the responsibility of each licensee to understand the specific CE rules of their respective licensure board.

Attendees of the 2018 ODA Leadership Institute have the opportunity to earn up to 5 CE credits.

- Friday morning keynote address: 1 CE credit (Category A)
- Breakout sessions:  1 CE credit each (see course descriptions for appropriate category information)
- Friday afternoon keynote address:  1 CE credit (Category C)
- Saturday keynote: 1 CE credit (Category A)

The Ohio State Dental Board (OSDB) recognizes the Ohio Dental Association (ODA) as a Permanent Sponsor of continuing education.
