Study Dental Practice Management in the convenience of your home or
Why take all that expensive continuing education to study dental practice
management? Dental boards as a rule
don't recognize practice management continuing education as fulfilling your
continuing education requirements.
The books available on this site are suitable for dental school study—college textbooks on dental practice management
that can be purchased here rather than at your college bookstore. Or use them
for personal study. It's much cheaper to study dental practice management with a
book than by attending a continuing education course. So why spend all that time
and money on continuing education courses—study at home. Buy all of your textbooks
at America's Dental Bookstore. Or, practicing dentists can buy these books and textbooks to further their knowledge of
whatever area of dentistry interests them.
