About Our Courses

FREE Self-Study Courses
SMS is pleased to offer our paying subscribers the opportunity to earn 8 hours of  free self-study continuing education credits per year.*

Our self-study CE courses are offered up to four times per year.  Each course has a deadline.  To participate at no charge, you must submit your answer form by the deadline.  For detailed self-study instructions, click here.

How to Earn FREE CE Credits
Dental professionals in your office may earn free CE credits.  Each person must read the self-study course materials and then complete an answer form online.  Credit hours are issued in the form of a certificate for the successful completion of each self-study course.  A total of 6/8 questions must be answered correctly to receive CE credit.   

The deadline has passed for 2014 Course 4.

2015 Course 1 will be released in January.

The Ohio State University College of Dentistry is a recognized provider for ADA CERP, AGD Fellowship, Mastership and Maintenance credit and an Ohio State Dental Board permanent sponsor of continuing education courses.

Once the deadline has passed, SMS subscribers may still participate and earn 2 CE credits for a $25 processing fee.  Please contact the SMS office for more details.
