Continuing dental education for dentists and dental hygienists is a core value of the School of Dentistry. This commitment to lifelong learning extends to the oral health professionals in Maryland and the neighboring states in the Mid-Atlantic region. The frequent advancements in science and technology result in a greater need for professional development.

Description: An educational experience that lasts one year and includes patient care observation. These programs are open to any dentist (U.S./International) with a dental degree; topics can be either general dentistry or dental specialties.
Completion of the Continuing Education Program is an educational goal in itself, and in no way insures acceptance to a Postgraduate Residency Program. Although many resources will be provided by the selected Department, this is a Continuing Education program and is not listed on the University of Maryland Registrar’s records.
* Note to Internationally-Educated Dentists: These programs WILL NOT prepare dentists to become licensed to practice dentistry in Maryland. If you are interested in practicing dentistry in Maryland, you will need a dental degree from an ADA-accredited dental school in order to be eligible to take the Maryland Dental License examination.
