Risk Management

The Oregon Dental Association *requires its members to complete three (3) hours, every three (3) years, of approved Risk Management education. Completion and verification is requisite by December 31st of each end year cycle. The ODA will send reminders to members that show no Risk Management CE on file. (Retirees and those permanently disabled are exempt).  The current Risk Management 3-year cycle is 1/1/2020 - 12/31/2022. 

Risk Management is offered each April at the Oregon Dental Conference, and local dental societies offer TDIC approved courses throughout the year. We are happy to verify whether additional companies CE meet ODA requirements. Please be sure to check with your malpractice carrier for dividend qualifications.

For your convenience, TDIC offers two online Risk Management CE options: 

1. Risk Management: A Practical Guide for Dentists
This is a FREE online self-study course provided by TDIC.

This is a 3-hour, online seminar provided by TDIC. $50.00 fee.
