Local District and Study Club CE
Requests for CE Certificates

Local District Dental Societies and Study Clubs are a great option for those seeking continuing education close to home. Societies and Clubs promoting their events are encouraged to include the​m on the GDA event calendar

Local District Dental Societies

Pursuant to Georgia Board of Dentistry Rule 150-3-.09 (2) (a), as tripartite affiliates of the American Dental Association, the Georgia Board of Dentistry recognizes the local District Dental Societies as approved CE providers in Georgia.
As approved CE providers, District Dental Societies are encouraged to create and distribute Verification of Participation forms (CE certificates) for each CE event from ​their district (and not from GDA). We've made it easy for you. Click here to download your district's Verification of Participation form now.

Study Club Requests for CE Certificates

Requests for Verification of Participation forms (CE certificates) for district dental societies and study clubs require considerable administrative effort by the GDA staff. For this reason we ask that anyone requesting Verification of Participation forms follow the procedures below. Requests that do not follow these procedures will not be considered.

Prior to the Event

Please submit a Request for CE Certificate form at least 30 days prior to the event.

During the Event
Use this event sign-in sheet to register participants for the event. Distribute this Evaluation Form (Word Document - your input is required for the first section) after the event.

After the Event
Complete this spreadsheet with information on all CE Event participants and email the completed document to Sheila Watson at Sheila@gadental.org. CE certificates will be emailed to each participant within 30 days of receipt of this spreadsheet.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For GDA to provide CE certificates for an event the submitting organization must confirm the event meets the minimum standards established in this document.


CE Certificates for non-members

Verification of Participation forms (also known as CE certificates) are a benefit of GDA membership. ​Per GDA policy, participants in study club CE events that are not GDA members and receive a GDA issued Validation of Participation form will be charged a $25 fee.
