We offer the gold standard in continuing education programs for dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. Creighton is an ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) Recognized Provider, which means you’ll earn high-quality continuing dental education credits. Creighton University is an approved CE provider by the states of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota and South Dakota. 

Compassionate Care, Strong Connections

When you earn CE credits from Creighton, you’ll receive an education rooted in the Jesuit, Catholic tradition that will help you provide the best and most compassionate care for your dental patients. In addition, Creighton proudly fosters relationships among health sciences schools, CHI Health, area hospitals and other health care organizations to position us to provide the most relevant interprofessional continuing education. 

Learn from the Best

We bring in dental experts from around the region and the world. You’ll learn alongside members of the national dental community. Creighton regularly offers CE events such as:

  • Dental Assembly—This annual multi-day continuing education opportunity—held in conjunction with Reunion Weekend—addresses a wide selection of the latest issues in dentistry. 
  • Endodontic Symposium—Learn about a variety of topics, such as oral pain management. 
  • Periodontics Symposium—Each symposium has a different focus depending on current trends in the profession.
