Continuing Education Credit Options

Free CE Opportunities

A Table Clinic is a 5- to 7-minute tabletop demonstration of an educational topic of clinical or practice management interest to dental professionals that can earn you FREE CE credits. Attendees walk from table to table after each short presentation.

Star One-hour Lecture Series

The popular STAR Lecture Series features three different speakers discussing three different topics on Friday. Each presentation will last one hour with a 15-minute break in between. Credit will be issued based on the number of courses attended.

Credit Verification

You can verify your CE credits at the conference when you’re done with your sessions, through our mobile app, or online following the conference.


For Verification & Portfolio

According to the Minnesota Board of Dentistry rules, it is the responsibility of the individual dental professional to preserve a record of their CE activities. Every attendee who earns CE credits to meet professional development requirements should print a copy of their transcript. Transcripts are available online for up to six months after the meeting (older transcripts can be requested via contacting QMS Services). File the transcript in your professional development portfolio as proof of your continuing education activities at the Star of the North Meeting.

Numbers Matter

Tips for Easy Verification

The Star of the North CE Verification system helps you to keep track of your professional development/CE activities at the meeting, but remember these tips! When you register, include the individual state license number of ALL licensed attendees to ensure CE credits are granted for EACH person. Codes are announced at the conclusion of every CE-eligible session. Space will be provided in the onsite program book to record the codes. Partial credit cannot be granted and if you leave a program before the code is announced, you will forfeit any CE credits.

ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education.
