TDA Online Continuing Dental Education

The Tennessee Dental Association is committed to offering CE courses grounded in a sound scientific basis that allow dentists and dental team members the opportunity to maintain and upgrade the skills, knowledge, technological insight and competence required for delivery of optimal dental health care and to guard against CE that might promote clinical or technical recommendations that have been proven to be ineffective or harmful. 

Our online continuing education courses allow you to obtain CERP approved credit hours on your own schedule, as time permits, at a very reasonable price. These courses are also approved by the Tennessee Board of Dentistry. 

Courses from the Journal of the TDA start at $15.00 each. The chemical dependency course from the TDA Newsletter starts at $25.00. 

Disclaimer: Participants must always be aware of the hazards of using limited knowledge in integrating new techniques or procedures into their practice. Only sound evidence-based dentistry should be used in patient therapy.

The Tennessee Dental Association is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider.

ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by the boards of dentistry. Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to ADA CERP at



Select the desired continuing education course from the “Online Course” listing. Complete and submit the exam questions. If you correctly answer 75% or more of the exam questions you will be requested to submit payment via MasterCard or Visa. Once your payment has been processed you will be responsible for printing your “Verification/Certification Form.”

Credit to a participant will be granted only once for each course. Credit may not apply toward license renewal in all licensing jurisdictions. It is the responsibility of each participant to verify the CE requirements of his/her licensing or regulatory agency.

All courses are offered with a 100% money-back guarantee. You may request and will receive a refund at any time prior to the issuance of your verification/certificate. Once a verification/certificate has been issued to a participant, refunds are not available.
