General Information

Course Credit

Full attendance and course completion is required to obtain CE credit. Participants receive a statement of attendance at the end of each course upon completion and return of the course feedback survey.

TCDM does not send CE credit information to state boards or licensing/regulatory agencies. Meeting attendees are responsible for ensuring that their CE credits are current and on file. Please contact your local licensing authority for CE credit hour guidelines and regulations.

Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellations for CE courses must be received in writing (by email: dentalCE@touro.edu) at least 14 days prior to the start of the course to be eligible for a refund. TCDM will retain a $25 processing fee when a refund is issued for courses less than $249 and a fee of $50 for courses that are $250 or more.

TCDM will grant a full refund (or pro-rated refund for multi-day courses) if a course must be canceled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances. The School will contact all registrants at the time of cancellation. TCDM cannot assume responsibility for reimbursement of participants’ travel arrangements due to cancellations or for losses due to emergencies or other unforeseen circumstances. Course fees for no-shows will be forfeited.

Tax Deduction

The IRS allows an income tax deduction for Continuing Education course expenses when course content is designed to maintain or improve skills required for an individual’s business. Deductible expenses may include registration fees, cost of travel, meals, and lodging. Please consult your tax professional/accountant for specific information.
