Continuing Dental Education

In accordance with OHSU policy and the orders set forth by Oregon Governor, Kate Brown, the School of Dentistry’s educational facilities are only open for approved individuals only. We are postponing most in-person CE events. If you have any questions, please contact Alex Case at
