Dental CE – Why You Need It?

Dental continuing education (CE) is mandatory in nearly all states today to be able to practice dentistry. The constant and, at times, rapid influx of updated methods and issues in dental care and new technologies in dental science has made it crucial for state boards to make it a requirement for license renewal and has made it imperative for dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants to keep up with the latest.

Healthcampus.com – through its Home Study Educators (HSE) – offers all the courses required by a state board to complete your dental CE for your certification and/or your license renewal. Modern-day health issues such as HIV-AIDS and hepatitis and important innovations in dental science such as dental implants are integral parts of the HSE program, as are a full suite of other topics selected, developed, and written by dental professionals and dental educators with the special aim of providing only high-value materials that you can easily and independently study at home.

HSE, a duly accredited ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) provider, offers all its courses in two convenient formats: mail-order book format AND online book format. You choose the format you prefer. To complete your dentistry continuing education, just choose your courses (the state board requires a minimum number of credits), get your materials (mail order OR online book), take the exam (it’s available online if you chose online book), get your certificate. Completing mandatory continuing education has never been easier!

HIV/AIDS & Public Health Issues
This course does exactly what it says, that is, it updates our information on the immunology and pathogenesis of HIV/AIDS. It is in part, a synopsis of material presented in the 4 hour AIDS course offered by Home Study Educators. The course covers the mandatory objectives required for license renewal: epidemiology, prevention, transmission and signs and symptoms. The rise in the incidence of gonorrhea after a drop in the 1980’s raises concern that AIDS (after a significant drop) may be increasing. The CDC now recommends screening HIV-positive patients for tuberculosis and syphilis which have the potential to spread to the immunocompetent population. Combination antiretroviral therapy is the standard of care at this time, though varying approaches to initiating therapy are suggested. This recent introduction of combination therapy has led to a significant decrease in AIDS deaths in the late 1990’s. Health professionals can now offer patients real hope in inhibiting immune destruction until a cure is found. A detailed appendix follows the text, listing AIDS associated diseases, drugs and their interactions, recommendations for antiretroviral combination therapy, and prophylaxis for heath care workers who are exposed occupationally. The appendix is designed to be used as a ready reference when decisions concerning AIDS must be made in clinical situations.

The Art of Photography

"Photographs are visual stories; as such, they are a very effective way to enter the emotional side of the brain where a patient makes decisions about treatment," he explains. The camera in an aesthetic practice is just as important as the handpiece, x-ray or any other piece of equipment. The reality is that you, as a practicing dentist, make your money when you are actually treating your clients. This program will show you the ways to do that more often by using photography.
