Continuing Education

Policies

The University of North Carolina School of Dentistry cautions continuing dental education participants that there are potential risks of using limited knowledge when incorporating new techniques and procedures into the practice of dentistry, especially when the continuing education activity has not provided supervised clinical experience and/or competency tests in the techniques or procedures.

Dental education institutions have an obligation to disseminate new knowledge related to dental practice. In so doing, some presentations may include controversial materials or commercial references. Sponsorship of a continuing education activity by the University of North Carolina does not necessarily imply endorsement of a particular philosophy, procedure or product by this institution.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to equality of educational opportunity and does not discriminate against applicants, students or employees based on age, sex, race, color, national origin, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
