As many of our courses are case-based lectures,
 please note that no video or audio recordings are allowed.

There are some new and exciting offerings in this Spring’s Course Line-up.  The Ninth District is including some non-conventional, mandated courses.  A HIPAA-Compliance course which requires a minimum of 25 registrants.  Pricing is imposed by NYSDA and includes one copy of the NYSDA HIPAA Security Compliance Manual, per office. 

For this course, we will close registrations one week in advance.  At that time, if we do not have the minimum number or registrants required, we will have to cancel the course – so please register early!

                                ADA-Member Dentists:                 $175.00
                                Auxiliary Staff (pp)                       $  55.00
                                Non-Member Dentists:                 $275.00

Secondly, we will hold an OSHA-Compliance course, live and on-site at Headquarters for all of you who prefer in-person to online courses. 

And, finally, a No Cost, Risk Management Course offered by NYSDA & Sponsored by MLMIC.  Again, this course will take place at Ninth District Headquarters and fulfills the 3-year mandate for relicensure.  This course also results in an up-to-10% malpractice premium reduction, per year.
