08/10/24 – 1pm-4pm PT / 3-6pm CT / 4-7pm ET California Dental Practice Act


Instructor: Dr. Kenneth Colerick, D.D.S.

Every dentist licensed to practice in the state of California is required to take an approved course of the California Dental Practice Act. This Act defines the procedures, activities, conduct, and scope of how a dentist must practice in the state of California. Most of these same guidelines apply to the ethical practice of dentistry across the USA. 


This course is approved by the Dental Board of California to fulfill the California Dental Practice Act requirement for license renewal.

- For California licenses, this course will count as:

2 CREDIT HOURS for the CA Dental Practice Act requirement; and

1 CREDIT HOUR for discussion, quiz or Q&A

The object of this course is to give the clinician an understanding of the California Dental Practice act in the following areas:

  • The scope of the dental practice
  • Requirement for renewal of the dental license
  • The use of auxiliaries in a dental practice
  • The laws governing the prescribing of drugs
  • Citations
  • Acts in violation of the Dental Practice Act
  • Advertising
  • Dental Corporations
Very clear and easy to understand with excellent examples to help dental staff minimize mistakes.
