Now Available: Continuing Education Credits
The MetLife Quality Initiatives Program is recognized by the following organizations to award continuing education credits for its educational offerings:
- American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP)
- Academy of General Dentistry
In addition, dentists in the states of California, Florida and Iowa have unique requirements for licensure purposes. The MetLife Quality Initiatives Program is also recognized by the Dental Board of California (RP4331); Florida Board of Dentistry (50-6335) and the Iowa Board of Dental Examiners.
Dentists and allied health care professionals can earn continuing education credits by participating in educational offerings sponsored by the MetLife Quality Initiatives Program.
Continuing education is an integral part of staying current on clinical and professional developments. Practicing and Academic dentists who serve on the MetLife Dental Advisory Council meet regularly to review quality data and the educational needs identified by dentists participating in the Preferred Dentist Program. Educational offerings are developed as a result of this needs assessment.
You can participate in the needs assessment by completing the evaluation form that accompanies the guide(s) you review. You will be asked about topics for future guides. Your comments are shared with the guide's author. Guides are updated every three years, and more often when changes in dentistry indicate.
MetLife Quality Resource Guides (QRG) are self-study courses authored by full time members of a dental school faculty or dentists who hold a prominent position with a national dental organization (e.g. NIDCR, ADA) or professionals who have published in the subject area. Guides undergo an extensive peer review process prior to publication.
CE credits are FREE to dentists and office staff in the MetLife programs as a benefit of participation.* Non-participating dentists can access MetLife educational offerings at no charge. If a non-participating dentist desires educational credits, he or she will be prompted to provide credit card information prior to the post-test being processed.
