The Louisiana State Board of Dentistry requires that dentists with a permit to administer moderate sedation to pediatric patients attend a live, in-person review course once every four years. For dentists licensed in other states, call your state board office to confirm whether this course satisfies their continuing education requirements.

Video Conference

LSUCDE video courses are live-streamed via BlueJeans. CE administrators perform role call and random check-ins via the chat window in BlueJeans. If you miss one or more check-ins it could affect your credits. Before the course you will receive three links: 

  • a link to the meeting,
  • a link to a short test,
  • and a link to a course evaluation.

If you are new to video conferencing and/or if you have not participated in a video conference course with LSUCDE and/or it has been awhile since your last video conference WE STRONGLY ADVISE that you review all troubleshooting/test links that will be sent to you in your "course logisitics" email and attend the "tech help" session prior to the course. You must submit the test and evaluation in order to receive credit. The Louisiana State Board of Dentistry counts CE hours earned through LSUCDE live video conference as in-person hours.
