General Information

Eligibility

Continuing Dental Education (CDE) courses are open to IHS, Tribal, Urban, and Contract dental personnel. Some courses require completion of a prerequisite course. This is noted on the Course Detail page of each catalog offering. For example, dental assistants may not enroll in the Restorative Expanded Functions-Advanced course unless they have successfully completed the Restorative Expanded Functions-Basic course.

Before Selecting Your CDE Courses

Before selecting a CDE course, you must complete an Individual Development Plan (IDP) with a supervisor. The IDP identifies training needs that would be most appropriate for an employee and the dental program for which he / she works. If you have not already completed an IDP with your supervisor, you can find a copy of the form by going to the Dental CDE Website at the following address:

https://www.ihs.gov/doh/

To Locate the form, follow these steps:

  1. Click the "Please Login" link near the top of the page.
  2. Once you are logged in, click the "CDE” tab on the left side of the page.
  3. On the CDE website, click the "My CDE” tab on the left side of the page.
  4. Then on the right side of the “My CDE” page, click the "IndividualDevelopmentPlan.doc" link under “Forms.”
  5. Download the IDP form, print it out and complete the form with your supervisor.

Selecting Your CDE Courses

Once you have completed your IDP, you may select your courses. For the current fiscal year, you may choose a maximum of three courses by following these steps:

  1. Click the “Catalog” tab in the main navigation on the left side of the CDE website.
  2. Scroll as needed to find a course of interest.
  3. Click the Course Number to go to the Course Detail page.
  4. If this is a course that you wish to select, click the “Select Course” button.

Supervisor Approval of Your Course Selections

After you have selected all your courses, you are ready to process the selections by 1) prioritizing selections and 2) confirming priorities. Both these steps must be completed before sending the request to your supervisor. The CDE system uses the priorities you set here to register you in your most wanted course. Once you confirm your priorities, the CDE system sends an email to your supervisor requesting approval. To begin the Supervisor Approval process, click the “Request Approval” button on the right side of any Course Detail page.

Once your request is sent, you can track the status of your request using the "My CDE" page.

Help is Available

If you are using the CDE website for the first time, ask one of your co-workers or your supervisor for assistance. If you have forgotten your username or password, click on the “Forgot Password” link on the Login page. If you wish to confirm that you have made your selections correctly, you can contact IHSCDECoordinator@ihs.gov for assistance.

Update Your Dental Directory Listing

If you do not receive an automated email, that is an indication that your email address is listed incorrectly in the online Dental Directory. Please make corrections to the Dental Directory by following these steps:

  1. Login to the Dental Portal (https://www.ihs.gov/doh/).
  2. Your Directory Listing is shown in the upper right corner of the page.
    Note: If you do not see a section entitled “Your Directory Listing”, you are not logged into the Dental Directory; please click the “Login Help” tab on the left side of the page for help logging on.
  3. Make changes to the information as needed by clicking "update your directory listing."

It is important that your email address be correct in the Dental Directory since emails may be sent to advise you of course changes, course cancellations, and course assignments.

Confirming Your Attendance

Due to the extremely high demand for CDE courses, and the need to utilize resources efficiently, confirmation or cancellation of course attendance is required. When you are registered for a course, the status on that course will read “Registered” on the “My CDE” page. You can update the “Status” of your attendance at any time by clicking on the word “Registered” and indicating “Attending” or “Not-Attending.” If you have not confirmed attendance, the message “Please Confirm Your Attendance” will appear in red under the Course Title on the “My CDE” page twelve weeks before the course is due to start. Follow these steps to confirm attendance:

  1. On the "My CDE" page, click the message “Please Confirm Your Attendance.”
  2. Select a new status from the list provided and enter an appropriate comment.
    Note: If you select "Not Attending," your space in the class will be lost and filled with the first available waitlisted individual.
  3. Click the "Submit" button to finalize the change.

The Course Director will request that you re-confirm your attendance to him / her in writing after you have received your confirmation letter. If registered participants fail to confirm their intention to attend a course at least seven (7) weeks prior to the course start date, they will lose their training opportunity. Their places in a course will be offered to people on the waiting list.

Paying Your Tuition

Tuition is not charged for dental personnel working at IHS federal programs. Tuition will be charged for dental personnel working at Tribal dental programs that have taken their headquarters dental shares.

If you are charged tuition, it must be paid eight (8) weeks before the start date of a course. You pay tuition by check or money order made payable as directed in the catalog and in the course confirmation letter you receive.

"In Your Clinic" and "By Request" courses have associated costs for travel, per diem, lodging, salary, and honorarium for instructors. These costs will be charged to all IHS, Tribal, and Urban dental programs. Contact the Course Director to schedule a course and negotiate fees.

Travel & Lodging Information

Course participants are responsible for confirming attendance in a course, making travel and lodging arrangements, obtaining necessary travel documents, and ensuring that clinic schedules are arranged to allow for participants' absence.

Eight (8) to twelve (12) weeks before the start of a course, the Course Director will mail out information on lodging, special instructions regarding travel, uniform of the day, and the phone number of someone to contact to answer questions.

Another way to check travel and lodging information for a course is through the CDE website. Once you go to www.ihs.gov/doh/ and login, go to the CDE site and click on the course for which you are registered and scroll down on the Course Detail to the travel section. Some course directors will post the course confirmation letter on the CDE website under “Course Materials” which is under “Tools.”

CDE Certificates

Course participants can view and print transcripts through the CDE system. A transcript lists the courses you have completed and the number of CDE credits earned since FY 2002. The transcript will be automatically updated when you complete courses in FY 2011.

Course participants are encouraged, upon their return to their worksite, to discuss course content with their supervisor and co-workers, and share what was learned and whether the course would be appropriate for other staff to attend.

Accreditation

The IHS Division of Oral Health is an American Dental Association (ADA) Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) Recognized Provider. In order to receive credit, participants must attend all sessions of a course. Evening sessions or pre-course work may be scheduled at the discretion of the course instructor, and will be announced at the beginning of the course.

It is the policy of the Indian Health Service, Division of Oral Health, that faculty/planners disclose any financial or other relationships with commercial companies whose products may be discussed in the educational activity. The Indian Health Service, Division of Oral Health, also requires that faculty disclose any unlabeled or investigative use of pharmaceutical products and medical devices.

    The Indian Health Service has been a pioneer since 1961 in the training and certification of dental assistants for expanded duties. Expanded Function Dental Assistants [EFDAs] can significantly increase clinical productivity and access to dental services. The purpose of this course is to introduce the dental assistant to the placement and finishing of restorative materials used in operative dentistry. Technical background information is presented in cavity classification and dental anatomy. Class I, II, V amalgam restorations, Class III, and V composite restorations are covered in lecture and laboratory exercises. Both written and practical examinations are used to measure participant progress. The basic course has been organized for those dental assistants who have limited or no training and/or experience in the placement of restorative materials. Additionally, it is limited to those clinics where the ratio of dentists to dental assistants allows the practice of expanded restorative functions. If the newly acquired skills are to become fully developed, the assistant must be able to return to his/her clinic and work with their dentist for a recommended period of 6 months. This follow-up is required in order to complete the course and receive a certificate.

    AGENDA:
    Day 1: Didactic [Cavity classification system, Class V buccal amalgam] laboratory practice on typodont

    Day 2: Didactic [Class I occlusal amalgam, Class II two-surface amalgam] laboratory practice   on typodont practical test on Class V amalgam written test

    Day 3: Didactic [Burnishing and polishing, Class III and V composites] laboratory practice on typodont practical test on Class I amalgam written test

    Day 4: Didactic [Cavity liners] laboratory practice on typodont practical test on Class II [two-surface] amalgam written test

    Day 5: Laboratory practice on typodont final exam

    Post-Course Work: Participants must complete 40 restorations under the proctorship of a supervising dentist within 6-12 months following course completion.

    Pre-Course Work: Participants must complete the online Restorative Expanded Functions - Basic Prerequisite Course at least 2 weeks prior to attending the Restorative Expanded Functions - Basic Course. SUPERVISORS should work with dental assistants prior to the course to make sure that they have the knowledge to successfully complete/pass the written and practical tests required.

    Certification Process: Following successful completion of the 40 restorations [which must be done within 1 year of completion of the course], the dental assistant should send the evaluation sheet to the PRIMARY INSTRUCTOR of the course. The instructor will then contact the IHS CDE Coordinator requesting an EFDA Certificate be issued, and the student [new EFDA] will receive an e-mail with further instructions on how to print their EFDA Certificate.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
    1. Describe tooth morphology and structure.
    2. Place and finish basic amalgam and composite restorations.
    3. Discriminate between what is an acceptable and unacceptable restoration.

    Prerequisites:

    Completion of the online Restorative Expanded Functions-Basic Prerequisite course [please check the CDE Catalog for the appropriate course number - for FY 2018, it is DA0004]. This online course must be completed successfully at least two weeks prior to the course; failure to complete the course will result in un-registration of the student.

    Summary:

    NOTE: This course is scheduled to have 8 students. 5 students will be from the host site, and 1 slot will be open for other dental assistants on a first-come, first-served basis.

    The Indian Health Service has been a pioneer since 1961 in the training and certification of dental assistants for expanded duties. Expanded Function Dental Assistants [EFDAs] can significantly increase clinical productivity and access to dental services. The purpose of this course is to introduce the dental assistant to the placement and finishing of restorative materials used in operative dentistry. Technical background information is presented in cavity classification and dental anatomy. Class I, II, V amalgam restorations, Class III, and V composite restorations are covered in lecture and laboratory exercises. Both written and practical examinations are used to measure participant progress. The basic course has been organized for those dental assistants who have limited or no training and/or experience in the placement of restorative materials. Additionally, it is limited to those clinics where the ratio of dentists to dental assistants allows the practice of expanded restorative functions. If the newly acquired skills are to become fully developed, the assistant must be able to return to his/her clinic and work with their dentist for a recommended period of 6 months. This follow-up is required in order to complete the course and receive a certificate.

    AGENDA:
    Day 1: Didactic [Cavity classification system, Class V buccal amalgam] laboratory practice on typodont

    Day 2: Didactic [Class I occlusal amalgam, Class II two-surface amalgam] laboratory practice   on typodont practical test on Class V amalgam written test

    Course Types Course Types
    Summary:

    This is one of two webinars for this year's surveillance. If you are participating as an examiner, you only need to attend ONE of the two trainings. This training can be accessed at: https://ihs.adobeconnect.com/leadership07-18/ for the live session.

    From July to December this year, the Indian Health Service will be once again asking IHS, tribal, and urban dental programs to conduct an oral health survey of AI/AN children aged 1-5 years. We last surveyed 1-5 year-old AI/AN children in 2010 and 2014, and what we found from these surveys was that AI/AN children suffer more from tooth decay than other populations in the U.S., that early prevention before the age of two is critical, and that sealants on primary molars are underutilized. The purpose of these surveys is to monitor the burden of oral disease and use of the oral health care delivery system. We will have over a hundred programs around the country who will assess oral health status of AI/AN children, and this information can be used at the local, Area, and national level to show disparities that in turn can help programs prioritize and allocate resources to address those disparities.

    We are asking you and your clinic to participate in the upcoming survey. This means that you will screen a set number of 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year old children in non-dental clinic settings such as well-child, WIC, Early Head Start, Head Start, tribal preschool programs, and kindergarten. The number of children to screen is based on the size of your user population - the smaller the user population, the fewer children to screen.




    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
    1. Describe the purpose of the IHS Oral Health Surveillance Program;
    2. Describe the sampling methodology behind this year's surveillance; and
    3. Conduct oral health surveys on 1-5 year-old AI/AN children

There is a gap in knowledge about the prevalence, causes and treatment options for cleft lip/palate in our patient population. The knowledge gained from this presentation will allow them to support those patients with orofacial clefts before, during and after specialist intervention.

    This course is open to staff at the Kayenta Service Unit only.

    The course will have t2o 3-hour lectures: Change your thoughts to improve your outcomes, and It's all about saving lives. Both will focus on new products and emerging technologies.

    Course: CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS AND IMPROVE YOUR OUTCOMES

    Updated protocols assist us in determining our patient’s specific needs. As we move towards a more collaborative profession, we need to embrace these updates to identify those needs. We are presented with continuous challenges of new advances in products and technology and their use in dentistry and are in need information to determine when and how to add them into our armamentaria. As professionals providing health services, our perception of product use along with protocols needs to be discussed with our team as well as the interdisciplinary referrals we have. The process of care [assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, implementation, evaluation and documentation] requires a comprehension of protocols, products and treatment options and how they are to be utilized.

    1.   Distinguish which new-to-market products should be brought into your practice
    2.   Integrate materials and products for a variety of uses in the dental office from infection control, dental hygiene therapy, oral cancer screening, patient communication and instrumentation
    3.   Modify diagnosis assistance with the team and rationale for changes in assessment forms and diagnostic tools

    Course: It’s all about Saving Lives!

    As dental professionals we are able do something unique to help the thousands of individuals in need of our care. As a specific set of healthcare providers treating this unique group, transplant recipients, it is necessary for us to understand their dental care options and oral hygiene needs.
    Organ transplantation and donation has increased tremendously over the last 10 years yet there is still an immense need for understanding the processes of donation, transplantation and recipient care.
    Participate in a sharing of organ transplantation and donation information; learn about transplant recipients and their need for specialized dental care. This presentation will offer insight about the ‘how to’s’ of not only dental care for organ recipients but also communication with their families. We will also share insight on how to be a donor; understand that process and how to aid in sharing the message with your patients and colleagues on how to ~ Save Lives!
    Sharing life’s experiences is a fabulous way to learn!

    1.   Recognize the need for specialized care for transplant recipients
    2.   Develop protocols for patient’s dental needs based on medications and oral complications
    3.   Appreciate and understand organ donation processes
    4.   Communicate with patients and family to share the need for registration

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this seminar, participants should be able to:
    1. Participants will be able to distinguish which new-to-market products should be brought into your practice.
    2. Participants will be able to integrate materials and products for a variety of uses in the dental office from infection control, dental hygiene therapy, oral cancer screening, patient communication and instrumentation.

    From July to December this year, the Indian Health Service will be once again asking IHS, tribal, and urban dental programs to conduct an oral health survey of AI/AN children aged 1-5 years. We last surveyed 1-5 year-old AI/AN children in 2010 and 2014, and what we found from these surveys was that AI/AN children suffer more from tooth decay than other populations in the U.S., that early prevention before the age of two is critical, and that sealants on primary molars are underutilized. The purpose of these surveys is to monitor the burden of oral disease and use of the oral health care delivery system. We will have over a hundred programs around the country who will assess oral health status of AI/AN children, and this information can be used at the local, Area, and national level to show disparities that in turn can help programs prioritize and allocate resources to address those disparities.

    We are asking you and your clinic to participate in the upcoming survey. This means that you will screen a set number of 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year old children in non-dental clinic settings such as well-child, WIC, Early Head Start, Head Start, tribal preschool programs, and kindergarten. The number of children to screen is based on the size of your user population - the smaller the user population, the fewer children to screen.




    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
    1. Describe the purpose of the IHS Oral Health Surveillance Program;
    2. Describe the sampling methodology behind this year's surveillance; and
    3. Conduct oral health surveys on 1-5 year-old AI/AN children
