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:

http://www.doh.ihs.gov

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 before the lottery, you can contact Marybeth.kinney@comcast.net for assistance. If you prefer to speak to someone by phone, call 602-364-7747 and ask your question on a voicemail. Leave your name and phone number as well as convenient times to call you.

Lottery

A computerized lottery is used to register participants into courses. This gives everyone an equal opportunity to attend at least one course. The selection period for FY 2012 is October 3, 2011 - October 31, 2011. Please be sure that your CDE supervisor has approved your selections on the website before the end date because the lottery will be run on November 1, 2011.

Results of the Lottery

An automated email will be sent to you and your supervisor with the results of the lottery. If you do not receive an email with your results, login to the website and see your results under "My CDE."

The results of the lottery will be available on www.doh.ihs.gov on November 8, 2010.

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 (http://www.doh.ihs.gov).
  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 Headquarter dental shares.

If you are charged tuition, then 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.doh.ihs.gov 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.

    Summary:

    Today in America, addiction is a public health crisis. The opioid epidemic and substance use disorders more broadly have become one of the most common chronic illnesses in the U.S. In 2016, more than 115 Americans die from an opioid overdose. The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare.

    In 2015, nearly 21 million Americans – more than the number of people who have all cancers combined – suffer from a substance use disorder involving alcohol or drugs – but only 1 in 10 receives treatment. One in 7 people in the U.S. is expected to develop a substance use disorder at some point in lives.

    The Office of the Surgeon General released the first ever Surgeon General’s report on Substance Use and Addiction in November 2016. Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health addresses alcohol, illicit drugs, and prescription drug misuse, with chapters dedicated to neurobiology, prevention, treatment, recovery, health systems integration and recommendations for the future. It provides an in-depth look at the science of substance use disorders and addiction, calls for a cultural shift in the way Americans talk about the issue, and recommends actions we can take to prevent and treat these conditions, and promote recovery.

    In 2018, the Office of the Surgeon General released a public health advisory to urge more Americans to carry a lifesaving medication, naloxone, which can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. Additional help and resources are available.

    In 2018, The Surgeon General released Facing Addiction in America: Spotlight on Opioids to provide opioid-relevant information for the 2016 Surgeon General’s Report. The Surgeon General’s opioid postcard has 5 actions every person can take to stem the opioid epidemic. For more opioid resources, go to hhs.gov/opioids.

    This course is open to all USPHS dentists. The weblink will be sent out via the listserv.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
    1. Recognize signs of an opioid overdose, as compared to other medical emergencies;
    2. Administer an opioid reversal agent and provide assistance until emergency medical team responds; and
    3. Understand the role of dental staff in immediately responding to opioid overdoses.

    According to PL 97-35, the initial certification of competency in Dental Radiology involves two components:
    1. Written Evaluation: "A criterion-reference test designed to measure knowledge and functional capability essential for making diagnostically acceptable radiographic surveys with minimal risk to the patient and the operator."
    2. Clinical Evaluation: "The written examination is supplemented as necessary with a clinical examination." Demonstration of clinical proficiency means meeting the minimum standards in Infection control, radiology protection, quality of radiographs and presentation of radiographs.

    The radiology certification process is intended to be accomplished at the dental auxiliarys facility under the guidance of the supervising dentist.

    Learning Objectives:

    This course is the online version of the written exam.
    Upon successful completion [a grade of 75 percent or higher] on the online exam and the completion of the clinical portion of the radiology certification process, the dental auxiliary will receive a certificate of competency in radiology.

    To complete the online clinical portion of the radiology exam process, the supervisor must enter the clinical evaluations online in the dental directory. Go to the Assistants listing in the directory and use the drop down menu under their name to select "Add Radiology Clinical Eval" which will present the evaluation entering screen.

    According to PL 97-35, the initial certification of competency in Dental Radiology involves two components:
    1. Written Evaluation: "A criterion-reference test designed to measure knowledge and functional capability essential for making diagnostically acceptable radiographic surveys with minimal risk to the patient and the operator."
    2. Clinical Evaluation: "The written examination is supplemented as necessary with a clinical examination." Demonstration of clinical proficiency means meeting the minimum standards in Infection control, radiology protection, quality of radiographs and presentation of radiographs.

    The radiology certification process is intended to be accomplished at the dental auxiliarys facility under the guidance of the supervising dentist.

    Learning Objectives:

    This course is the online version of the written exam.
    Upon successful completion [a grade of 75 percent or higher] on the online exam and the completion of the clinical portion of the radiology certification process, the dental auxiliary will receive a certificate of competency in radiology.

    To complete the online clinical portion of the radiology exam process, the supervisor must enter the clinical evaluations online in the dental directory. Go to the Assistants listing in the directory and use the drop down menu under their name to select "Add Radiology Clinical Eval" which will present the evaluation entering screen.

    Prerequisites:

    It is recommended that dental auxiliaries study for the exam using Digital Imaging course DA2001.

    Summary:

    This is a recording of the live training offered on 7/11/18.

    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

    Tooth decay, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and cardiovascular disease rates have been increasing. And excessive sugar consumption explains all four.

    It's a popular misconception that glucose can cause cavities. Not true; glucose polymerizes on the teeth and forms a "biofilm" which actually protects the tooth from decay. This is why cavemen didn't get cavities. Fructose doesn't contribute to the mouth biofilm. It is metabolized by the mouth bacteria into lactic acid, which burns a whole right through the biofilm and through the tooth.

    Glucose also doesn't cause NAFLD or CVD. Only 20 of the glucose consumed finds
    its way to the liver, and the overwhelming majority of that glucose is turned into glycogen [liver starch], which is not dangerous. It's the fructose moiety of the sugar molecule that causes both diseases. Fructose gets turned into fat in the mitochondria, which drives NAFLD and insulin resistance, which leads to type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

    Physicians and dentists must be united in supporting public health measures to reduce chronic disease.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
    1. Describe the differences between fructose and glucose on metabolism;
    2. Explain the similarities between the effects of sugar on tooth decay and on liver pathology, and on cardiovascular disease; and
    3. determine the effects of sugar restriction on both oral and systemic disease.

    Summary:

    The Healthy People initiative is a program of national health objectives set by the US Department of Health and Human Services for each decade. The Healthy People initiative emerged in the United States following the creation of the World Health Organization in 1948 and the Lalonde Report in Canada in 1974. The initial report, Healthy People: The Surgeon General’s Report on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention [US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare 1979, cited under Through the Years], was released in 1979 and set national health objectives to be achieved by 1990, and the scope and range of objectives to promote health in the United States have been update and expanded each decade since then. It now sets the health promotion and disease prevention agenda for the nation. In the IHS, we use Healthy People to frame much of the work we do, including our oral health surveillance program, oral health promotion/disease prevention initiatives, and almost every IHS national oral health initiative over the past three decades. This is the “30,000 foot” view of all prevention activities!

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this live webinar, participants will be able to:
    1.   Describe the origins of the Healthy People initiative;
    2.   Outline the development and implementation of the Healthy People initiative;
    3.   Compare Healthy People 2020 to Healthy People 2030 in relation to oral health objectives; and
    4.   Explain, in general terms, efforts that the IHS has implemented to monitor and align with Healthy People 2020 goals.

    DE0205: Oral Health Surveillance Training: 2019-20 Survey of 13-15 Year-old AI/AN Youth
    Date(s): 7/24/2019 - 7/24/2019

    Course Types Course Types
    Summary:

    This training will provide dentists, dental hygienists, and dental health aide therapists with the knowledge and tools to conduct oral health survey on 13-15 year-olds. This training is required of all examiners, whether or not they completed the training in 2013 for this age group.

    Starting in 2010, the Indian Health Service began annual oral health surveillance that have helped highlight disparities in dental disease among the AI/AN population and have helped show improvement in certain age groups [1-5 and 6-9 year-olds]. Many participating IHS, tribal, and urban clinics have used these reports and their local data to better prioritize care in their clinics or apply for additional funding from internal and external sources. Our next survey project will begin on July 25th and last until February 29, 2020 and will focus on 13-15 year-old AI/AN children. Unlike the 2013 survey of this age group, this year’s surveys will be entirely clinic-based as we know how hard it is to get into the schools.

    We will have our first survey training on Wednesday, July 24th from 1:00 – 2:00 Eastern Time and hope that you can join us. We are still developing the sampling scheme and hope to be able to have a list of randomly selected clinics within the next week, but any clinics that want to volunteer to participate can also join this webinar. The advantage of volunteering to participate is that your clinic will have local data that can help highlight disparities or improvements compared to your IHS Area and the national data….information you can use to allocate resources or apply for funding. Every survey examiner must either complete the live or recorded webinar training, even if they have completed this training in the past [it is only one hour].

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this live webinar, participants will be able to:
    1.   Describe the methodology for this year’s surveillance program;
    2.   List who major contacts are with the surveillance program;
    3.   Apply key concepts in conducting surveys on 13-15 year-old youth.

    Summary:

    Food insecurity, or limited or uncertain access to adequate food for an active, healthy life, is an important contributor to health across the lifespan. Even after adjusting for socioeconomic status, food insecure adults are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes and, once they have diabetes, to have more difficulty with self-management of diabetes and other co-morbidities. This training will address implications of food insecurity for diabetes prevention and management, including strategies for supporting food insecure patients in the clinical setting through screening and referral to community resources. The session invites health team members to think of ways to be more responsive to the needs of food insecure patients and take steps to improve services.
    The recording of the live webinar on 3/27/19 will be available on the Division of Diabetes web site for three years. The live and recorded sessions of our trainings are all available at the following https://www.ihs.gov/diabetes/training/cmece-online-edu/diabetes-online-cme-ce-education/

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
    1. Explain key differences between hunger and food insecurity and why these differences are important for clinicians.
    2. Describe three mechanisms by which food insecurity increases risk of diet – sensitive chronic disease, and how these mechanisms are relevant for diabetes care.
    3.Identify one change you can make in your clinical or public health practice to assess or treat food insecurity.

    Summary:

    Tooth decay, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and cardiovascular disease rates have been increasing. And excessive sugar consumption explains all four.

    It's a popular misconception that glucose can cause cavities. Not true; glucose polymerizes on the teeth and forms a "biofilm" which actually protects the tooth from decay. This is why cavemen didn't get cavities. Fructose doesn't contribute to the mouth biofilm. It is metabolized by the mouth bacteria into lactic acid, which burns a whole right through the biofilm and through the tooth.

    Glucose also doesn't cause NAFLD or CVD. Only 20 of the glucose consumed finds
    its way to the liver, and the overwhelming majority of that glucose is turned into glycogen [liver starch], which is not dangerous. It's the fructose moiety of the sugar molecule that causes both diseases. Fructose gets turned into fat in the mitochondria, which drives NAFLD and insulin resistance, which leads to type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

    Physicians and dentists must be united in supporting public health measures to reduce chronic disease.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
    1. Describe the differences between fructose and glucose on metabolism;
    2. Explain the similarities between the effects of sugar on tooth decay and on liver pathology, and on cardiovascular disease; and
    3. determine the effects of sugar restriction on both oral and systemic disease.

    Summary:

    The Healthy People initiative is a program of national health objectives set by the US Department of Health and Human Services for each decade. The Healthy People initiative emerged in the United States following the creation of the World Health Organization in 1948 and the Lalonde Report in Canada in 1974. The initial report, Healthy People: The Surgeon General’s Report on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention [US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare 1979, cited under Through the Years], was released in 1979 and set national health objectives to be achieved by 1990, and the scope and range of objectives to promote health in the United States have been update and expanded each decade since then. It now sets the health promotion and disease prevention agenda for the nation. In the IHS, we use Healthy People to frame much of the work we do, including our oral health surveillance program, oral health promotion/disease prevention initiatives, and almost every IHS national oral health initiative over the past three decades. This is the “30,000 foot” view of all prevention activities!

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this live webinar, participants will be able to:
    1.   Describe the origins of the Healthy People initiative;
    2.   Outline the development and implementation of the Healthy People initiative;
    3.   Compare Healthy People 2020 to Healthy People 2030 in relation to oral health objectives; and
    4.   Explain, in general terms, efforts that the IHS has implemented to monitor and align with Healthy People 2020 goals.

    Summary:

    During the first trimester of pregnancy, the breasts begin producing colostrum in small amounts, and at the time of the baby’s birth, more colostrum is being produced by the breasts than the baby will need. However, some fear that the baby ‘won’t get enough’ or that the ‘milk won’t come in,’ and want to express colostrum before the baby is born. This session will present information on the collection of colostrum prenatally especially when it is necessary as an alternative to formula when lactogenesis is delayed due to obesity and diabetes.
    The recording of the live webinar on 6/11/19 will be available on the Division of Diabetes web site for three years. The live and recorded sessions of our trainings are all available at the following https://www.ihs.gov/diabetes/training/cmece-online-edu/diabetes-online-cme-ce-education/

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
    1.Describe the safety and efficacy of collecting colostrum prenatally to be used in the immediate postpartum to avoid low blood sugar and dehydration in the newborn.   
    2.Affect clinical practice to reduce or eliminate the use of formula for breastfeeding mothers with delayed lactogenesis.
    3. Clarify the practice of avoiding formula use in the first postpartum days.

    Course Types Course Types
    Summary:

    This training will provide dentists, dental hygienists, and dental health aide therapists with the knowledge and tools to conduct oral health survey on 13-15 year-olds. This training is required of all examiners, whether or not they completed the training in 2013 for this age group.

    Starting in 2010, the Indian Health Service began annual oral health surveillance that have helped highlight disparities in dental disease among the AI/AN population and have helped show improvement in certain age groups [1-5 and 6-9 year-olds]. Many participating IHS, tribal, and urban clinics have used these reports and their local data to better prioritize care in their clinics or apply for additional funding from internal and external sources. Our next survey project will begin on July 25th and last until February 29, 2020 and will focus on 13-15 year-old AI/AN children. Unlike the 2013 survey of this age group, this year’s surveys will be entirely clinic-based as we know how hard it is to get into the schools.

    We will have our first survey training on Wednesday, July 24th from 1:00 – 2:00 Eastern Time and hope that you can join us. We are still developing the sampling scheme and hope to be able to have a list of randomly selected clinics within the next week, but any clinics that want to volunteer to participate can also join this webinar. The advantage of volunteering to participate is that your clinic will have local data that can help highlight disparities or improvements compared to your IHS Area and the national data….information you can use to allocate resources or apply for funding. Every survey examiner must either complete the live or recorded webinar training, even if they have completed this training in the past [it is only one hour].

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this live webinar, participants will be able to:
    1.   Describe the methodology for this year’s surveillance program;
    2.   List who major contacts are with the surveillance program;
    3.   Apply key concepts in conducting surveys on 13-15 year-old youth.
