CE live format requirement returns 2023

CE format reminder the 100% self-study option for continuing education for NYS dental hygienists is slated to end January 1, 2023. After that date, if you have not completed all of your CE credits for renewal, you will have to meet the requirement for a certain numbers of live course hours. RDHs are mandated to complete 24 contact hours of CE during each 3-year registration period, at least 14 hours of which need to be live (a format where the attendee and speaker can speak directly to one another). See CE requirement (scroll to link for Section 6609-A).

Note that the NYS Office of the Professions is updating its website and has debuted a new design. See website’s new design
