The Dental Auxiliary Learning and Education Foundation (the DALE Foundation) was approved as an American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program (ADA CERP) Recognized Provider in May 2012 for a three-year period.
The DALE Foundation was evaluated on 14 aspects of continuing education quality and met ADA CERP’s standards and procedures. ADA CERP is administered by a standing committee of the ADA’s Council on Dental Education and Licensure. This committee includes representatives from the ADA, the American Association of Dental Boards, the American Society of Constituent Dental Executives, the American Dental Education Association and other organizations that represent recognized dental specialties.
“This is a great milestone for the DALE Foundation!” noted Cindy Durley, M.Ed., MBA, Executive Director of the DALE Foundation and the Dental Assisting National Board, Inc. (DANB). “Continuing education providers receive ADA CERP recognition for anywhere from a one- to a four-year time period; we’re proud to say that the DALE Foundation received initial recognition for a three-year period.”
The ADA CERP was established in 1993 to offer ADA members and the dental community a way of selecting continuing dental education with assurance. The program also assists regulatory agencies and other organizations that require continuing education to locate providers that offer acceptable credit.
