All dentists licensed under G.S. 90-30 shall be required to attend Board-approved courses of study in subjects relating
to dentistry. The Board shall have authority to consider and approve courses, or providers of
courses, to the end that those attending will gain (i) information on existing and
new methods and procedures used by dentists, (ii) information leading to increased
safety and competence in their dealings with patients and staff, and (iii) information
on other matters, as they develop, that are of continuing importance to the practice
of dentistry. The Board shall determine the number of hours of study within a particular period
and the nature of course work required. The Board may provide exemptions or waivers from continuing education requirements
where dentists are receiving alternate learning experiences or where they have limited
practices. The Board shall by regulation define circumstances for exemptions or waivers for
dentists who are involved in dental education or training pursuits where they gain
experiences equivalent to formal continuing education courses, for those who have
reached an advanced age and are semiretired or have otherwise voluntarily restricted
their practices in volume and scope, and for such other situations as the Board in
its discretion may determine meet the purposes of this section.
