New Registration Information for Symposium 2018

1) We are continuing to go paperless at our CE events so instead of a Symposium brochure, you will receive a postcard in the mail directing you to the web link for registration.  The postcard will be mailed out in late June.  Course and speaker information will be available online and registration through CE Zoom will be open at the time you receive your postcard.

2) Registration will be held totally through CE Zoom, a website that provides a convenient location to register, pay for CE Courses, instantly generate CE certificates and provide state specific CE tracking and compliance.  This site was used recently for the mid-winter scientific session registration with great success.  

Sign up for your free account through CE ZOOM. You can keep up with all the requirements for your dental hygiene license even if you have licenses in more that one state. You can also look for nearby CEs that are being offered. It is easy to sign up and SCDHA is going to be using this website as part of the registration process for all future CEs that they organize.

If you have any trouble signing up on CEZoom please watch this helpful youtube video:
