Lunch Sessions Banner

The NJDA has developed a VIRTUAL Lunch Session Series to support the educational needs of our members’ staff while satisfying licensure renewal requirements at a low cost.  The series is offered from April through November.  Each course will be offered three time during lunch hours. This series is available to team members only – dental hygienists, dental assistants, lab techs, office managers and staff.

The New Jersey State Board of Dentistry published a notice that three new licensure requirements will need to be completed for license renewal on December 31, 2022 for registered dental assistants and December 31, 2023 for dental hygienists:

  • One hour of continuing education in preventing and controlling Infectious Diseases and managing personnel health and safety concerns related to infection control in dental settings "Infectious Disease Control for Staff", Dr. Meredith Blitz
  • One hour of continuing education in educational programs or topics concerning prescription Opioid Drugs. "Oh, The Pain of it All", Dr. Thomas Viola
  • One hour of continuing education in educational programs in Professional Ethics and New Jersey law Concerning the Practice of Dental Hygiene or Dental Assisting. "Ethics: Truth or Consequences", Dr. Sidney Whitman


 Package: $99 for all 3 programs
 A la Carte: $49 per course                       
Registrants must be employed by a current member of the NJDA.             


The series is offered from April through November. Each course will be offered three times only during lunch hours.
