CE at NYU Dentistry: The Strategic Choice for Lifelong Learning

Now, more than ever, knowledge is power. The participants in NYU Dentistry’s Continuing Education (CE) program are successful before they arrive. But they know that NYU Dentistry’s CE program will give them the tools to go farther and perform even better. It’s about leadership. Making things happen. Putting your stamp on the future of dentistry.
Choosing the Right CE Program. How do you choose the right CE program? By selecting a program that has the resources, expertise, and experience to help you build your future.

  • NYU Dentistry's CE program attracts over 4,000 dental health professionals from more than 20 countries each year, making it the largest program of its type in the world.
  • Set in the most diverse and exciting city in the world, the program offers access to the single largest, most diversified site-based pool of dental patients anywhere.
  • Further taking advantage of its New York City location, which attracts the world’s top professionals in all fields, the program draws on the expertise of the best, most competitive, and most successful CE faculty.

Then there are the facilities. With the opening last fall of the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry, NYU Dentistry’s CE program gained educational resources that
are unparalleled in the world:

  • 8,500 square feet of space featuring an elegant mahogany and marble reception area,
  • 16 state-of-the-art patient treatment areas,
  • a corporate-style executive board room with remote broadcasting capabilities,
  • a modern dental laboratory,
  • a 52-seat amphitheater with global videoconferencing reach, and
  • an “operatory under glass,” outfitted with multiple cameras to permit live, interactive clinical demonstrations around the world.

Global Reach. In recent months, the CE program has broadcast two live, interactive international CE videoconferences—to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Florence, Italy. This innovation, which other CE programs cannot offer, is geared toward the sharing of information technology at the global level. The videoconferences offer opportunities to view stimulating cases being performed live in another country, learn about emerging dental techniques around the world, and engage in illuminating question-and-answer sessions conducted in real time among participants in several countries.

What the Future Holds. Look for more “hands-on” clinical participation courses in implant dentistry, aesthetic dentistry, and periodontics.

Also: Specially Designed Courses for Study Clubs. The CE program is now offering customized courses for dental study clubs. If you belong to a study club and would like to arrange a CE course tailored to your members’ special interests, it’s now easy to do.
