Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions
NEW THIS YEAR, PLEASE READ: How many CEU Credits will be offered?
CEU Credits -Credit is assigned by the MDS on an hourly basis, subject to final approval by the Board of Registration in Dentistry (BORID) in each state.

For courses not related to the practice of dentistry or dental hygiene, please check the BORID regulations.
How do I download the handouts for a course I am volunteering for?

Do I have to add the course(s) I’m volunteering for to my Yankee registration?
No, you only need to register for Yankee or any other courses you want to take during the convention. We will identify you as a volunteer, so you can add your codes and print out a transcript.
