Continuing Dental Education

Working to meet dental professionals' needs

Our Office of Continuing Dental Education (CDE) provides outstanding educational opportunities for dental professionals. We work closely with faculty, dental and dental hygiene societies and professionals in private practice to design programs to meet the dental community's needs.

Each year, we offer programs by local and international experts. The programs are both lecture and participation format and are designed to maximize attendees' learning opportunities.

If you're interested in seeing a particular topic or presenter at the Faculty of Dentistry, we welcome your suggestions. Please contact us at (902) 494-1674 or dentcde@dal.ca.
