Online CE courses to fulfill Act 31 and Act 124 CE requirements:
The Act 31 and Act 124 CE requirements can be fulfilled online. Visit the Pennsylvania State Board of Dentistry’s website for a list of approved Act 31 providers at www.dos.pa.gov/dentistry (click on Announcements and then Board Approved Act 31 Providers). Dental licensees (dentists, hygienists and EFDAs) can take any of the courses approved for mandated reporters or healthcare professionals or related specifically to dentistry.
Or, complete the complimentary online course available at www.reportabusepa.pitt.edu. The course is three hours and the State Board will recognize two of the three hours toward the CE hours needed for license renewal.
For Act 124, the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Office (PDMP Office) developed a series of seven modules, each for one hour of credit, available at: https://www.train.org/pa/search?type=course&query=%22PA-PDMP%22
Modules 3–7 can be used to meet the Act 124 of 2016 opioid education requirements and dentists need to complete two modules.
