Free Online CE From Metlife

MetLife's Quality Initiatives Program has been approved by the American Dental Association (ADA) as a recognized provider under its Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP). Dentists and allied health care professionals can earn continuing education credits by participating in educational offerings sponsored by the MetLife Quality Initiatives Program. The MetLife Quality Initiatives Program was the first commercial dental insurer whose educational offerings are currently approved for the ADA CERP.

Continuing education is an integral part of staying current on clinical and professional developments. The members of 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 the needs assessment.

You can participate in the needs assessment by completing the evaluation form that accompanies the guide you review. You will be asked about topics for future guides. Your comments regarding the guides you have reviewed are shared with the 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 participating in the MetLife Preferred Dentist Program (PDP) as a benefit of participation. Non-PDP dentists can access MetLife educational offerings at no charge. If a non-PDP dentist desires educational credits, he or she will be prompted to provide credit card information prior to the post-test being processed.
