CE & CPR Resources

The following resources are by no means comprehensive.  Additional resources may exist that are not listed here.  This is intended to serve as a starting point for licensees and registrants who need assistance locating courses.

Courses that the Iowa Dental Board understands to be available at no cost are marked with an asterisk (*).


Required Continuing Education 

All licensed dentists, dental hygienists, and registered dental assistants will be required to complete a minimum of 1 hour of continuing education in the area of Iowa jurisprudence, and a minimum of 1 hour in the area of infection control standards, as established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  

These continuing education courses may be completed in person, online, or via other self-study options.  Please keep in mind, there is a limit of 12 hours every renewal period, for all self-study courses.  Participation in live webinars, wherein participants can interact in real time via instant messaging or over phone with the instructor, is not considered self study.  Watching a webinar, which was previously recorded and available on demand, would be considered self study.


CPR Certification

Histrorical Information: CPR certification training completed January 1, 2022 or later must include a hands-on, clinical component to qualify for the purposes of application and renewal. Online-only CPR certification, which does not include a hands-on component, and was completed January 1, 2022 or later will not be accepted.

Note: If completing one of the following courses for the didactic portion of the CPR certification, you may want to verify with the hands-on instructor whether they will accept the online training from the resources below.  While the Board will accept the following courses to meet the didactic/online training component, the Board cannot make CPR instructors accept the training when determining whether the CPR certification is complete including hands-on training.

Jurisprudence Course Submissions

In order to ensure consistency between jurisprudence courses, the Iowa Dental Board requests that all Iowa jurisprudence courses be reviewed and approved by the Board.  Additional courses will be posted following approval by the Board.  If you wish to submit a request for approval to offer jurisprudence as a continuing education course, please download the following form: Application for Approval of a Jurisprudence Continuing Education CourseNote: The intent should not be to cover all of the chapters listed on the outline in a single one-hour course.  Rather, the form is intended to be a guide to meet the needs of your intended audience(s).

Upon receipt, the course will be reviewed at the next meeting** of the Continuing Education Advisory Committee.  The committee's recommendation will be reviewed by the Board for a final decision at the following Board meeting.  A full list of scheduled committee and Board meetings is available here.

**To ensure inclusion at a committee or Board meeting, requests and related materials must be received no later than two weeks in advance of the scheduled meeting.  Requests received after that date may be held for a subsequent meeting.

Infection Control

The CDC last updated the guidelines for infection control in dental offices in the December 19, 2003 issue of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), Vol. 52, No. RR-17.

Please note: Not all OSHA courses will meet this requirement.  Although there may be some overlap between OSHA training and infection control standards, not all OSHA courses address matters related to infection control.  If your OSHA training includes a minimum of 1 hour focused on CDC guidelines for infection control in dental offices, that training will meet this requirement.  Should you use an OSHA course to meet this requirement, you may be asked to submit evidence of the focus on infection control if you should be selected for continuing education audit.

The following providers offer continuing education courses in the area of infection control.  Please note: You are not restricted to this list of infection control continuing education providers.  

Centers for Disease Control
Website: https://www.cdc.gov/oralhealth/infectioncontrol/safe-care-modules.htm
Note: here are 10 modules.  1.0 hour of credit awarded for each module completed.  You may complete this form to document completion of the CDC modules.
