In addition to the live sessions, AO e-Learning Center currently holds 26 recorded webinars and annual meeting presentations, which are still available for CE credit. Some of these courses are offered specifically as a certified course for achieving the AO Certificate in Implant Dentistry. Participants can view each webinar on-demand and earn one hour of ADA CERP credit via AO’s video archive up to 90 days following the initial live session date. This AO member benefit is also a great way to earn CE credit towards the certificate.

After that time, access to all previously recorded webinars, as well as past Annual Meeting presentations is provided via AO’s Video Library, where over 100 recorded presentations can currently be viewed. No CE credit is provided for presentations in the Video Library.

These live sessions as well as archives are also available to non-members for a nominal cost. Visit osseo.org to view the current archive of available videos.

To register for AO’s upcoming webinars or for questions about this webinar series or its video library, please contact Kim Scroggs, AO Manager of Education via email (KimberlyScroggs@execadmin.com) or phone: 847-725-2288.
