Continuing Dental Education
This program was started by the late George F. Baker, DDS and has been providing Continuing Dental Education courses since 1973. The goal of this program is to provide dentists, technicians, hygienists, students and other dental professionals the opportunity to participate in locally based continuing education seminars needed to maintain professional licenses. The Continuing Dental Education Program is a community based partnership between Central San Joaquin Valley dentists and the University of California, San Francisco, Medical School Program. Although our program is housed within the UC building in downtown Fresno, it is a self supporting program and receives no support from the State of California. The Continuing Dental Education is totally dependent on generous donations from our monthly corporate sponsors and outside gifts. Lectures are presented by faculty from a wide variety of dental institutions. Programs are designed to provide the most up-to-date information and strategies for dentists and related allied health professionals. Courses have been approved by the Dental Board of California, The Academy of General Dentistry and are planned by Program Chairman, Timothy G. Baker, DDS.
