Housed in the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, the Continuing Dental Education (CDE) Office offers 23-25 courses annually for approximately 1,300 dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and dental laboratory technicians. Guest clinicians and local faculty present lecture, demonstration and participation programs in all the clinical disciplines.
