LIVE WEBINAR OPTIONS

The Colorado Dental Board intentionally chose wording for the Continuing education requirements that allow providers in rural parts of the state,
or with busy schedules, to be able to complete the “live and interactive” required hours.
LIVE webinars count for this requirement – must be scheduled at a specific date and time. You must be able to ask questions of the presenter in real time.
Pre-recorded videos and webinars that are available on-demand do not count for this requirement.

Colgate offers FREE, LIVE webinars several times per month. These webinars count as “live and interactive” CE hours for the Colorado Dental Board. Also available are online CE courses and articles.

OTHER ONLINE CE OPTIONS

Why Walk? Walks raise vital Sjögren’s awareness and crucial funds to support education and research efforts. This year, we are also commemorating 40 years of Sjögren’s progress with our special walk theme: Conquering Sjögren’s, One Step at a Time!

Participate! Register as an individual and personalize your walk page by sharing your story to encourage others to support your efforts. Or make an even bigger impact by registering as a team captain and recruiting family members, friends, and others to form a team and also raise donations. Donate or raise $50 and you’ll receive a Walk for Sjögren’s t-shirt to wear on Walk Day, if you do so by June 9. (Otherwise you might receive your shirt after walk day instead.)
