Questions and Answers for Dentists and Dental Hygienists
The continuing education requirement for dentists will be changing. Beginning July 1, 2008, New York State Education Law will require dentists to complete 60 contact hours of continuing education in each three-year registration period. For dental hygienists, the law still requires the completion of 24 contact hours in each three-year registration period. The law that applies to these requirements (Title VIII of Education Law) is available on this site.
The New York State Board for Dentistry does not maintain or have access to the continuing education records of any licensee.
