As a service to our AO members interested in applying for the AO Certificate in Implant Dentistry, we have labeled each applicable presentation described on this website, indicating how presentation corresponds to the CE Requirements for the Certificate. Listed below are the required CE categories for the Certificate. Each has been assigned a number. In our program, you will see a number, or numbers, that correspond to the individual presentations. These numbers indicate how CE credits from these presentations can be applied toward earning the AO Certificate CE requrements. You may only apply one category per presentation towards each CE requirement.
