Accreditation & CE

  Lost your CE Code??



The Hinman Dental Meeting utilizes a computerized accreditation process. Hinman provides one hour of credit for each hour of lecture, unless otherwise indicated in the course description.  Be sure to make note of the CE code announced at the conclusion of each course and keep your badge number to log in on our App or online after Hinman to redeem CE certificates. 

Contact our registration service, Eleventh & Gather, at 1-866-248-2883 to obtain your CE certificates ($25 fee) from any Hinman meeting PRIOR TO 2014.

We offer five types of courses at our Meeting and Pre-registration is required to attend any course at Hinman. Here is a break down of each type of course:

  • General Attendance (no fee lectures) Course # 300s: You must register for these courses during the pre-registration process or onsite. Attendees must have general attendance courses listed on their course summaries to enter the room before the start of each course. Seating for these courses is only guaranteed up to the published start time. After the published start time, admittance to each general attendance course will be on a first-come, first-served basis until the room is at capacity.
  • Registered Attendance (Fees vary and tickets must be purchased in advance) Course # 200s: Confirmation of these courses will be printed on your badge for those who pre-registered. Once onsite, seats can be purchased from Ticket Sales in Registration.
  • Interactive Courses (Fees vary & tickets must be purchased in advance) Course # 500s. Once onsite, seats can be purchased from Ticket Sales in Registration if space is available.  
  • Participation Courses (Fees vary & tickets for these hands-on courses must be purchased in advance) Course # 100s. Once onsite, seats can be purchased from Ticket Sales in Registration if space is available.
  • Seminar (Fees vary & tickets must be purchased in advance) Course # 500s.

CE Provider Information

The Thomas P. Hinman Dental meeting is an Approved PACE Program Provider (FAGD/MAGD Credit) by the Academy of General Dentistry. Approval does not imply acceptance by a state or provincial board of dentistry or AGD endorsement. Search AGD subject codes at their website here. The 2020 Hinman AGD codes by course are listed here. 

To receive AGD credit, include your AGD number where indicated on the registration form or when registering online. For the 2018 Meeting, Hinman will submit CE to the AGD on April 26, 2019. After this date, you will be required to submit your own CE to the AGD for credit from the 2018 meeting (if you did not provide your AGD number when you registered).

The Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting has carefully selected all lecturers, exhibits and exhibitors present at each Hinman Dental Meeting. The contents of any particular program, lecture, exhibit or handout are the responsibility of the respective lecturer or exhibitor presenting such material. The Hinman Dental Society does not endorse or approve any materials so presented.


Certified Dental Technicians (CDTs)

Certified Dental Technicians (CDTs) can earn continuing education hours from courses taken at the Hinman Dental Meeting since the Hinman Dental Meeting is a PACE-approved provider by the Academy of General Dentistry.  Please note that AGD will NOT be reporting CDT credits directly to the National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology (NBC).


To receive CDT credits, CDTs will need to self-submit their hours to NBC by providing copies of the CE certificates of attendance obtained from Hinman. CDTs will need to mail, fax or upload CE certificates at www.nbccert.org in order to report their credits. Please be sure to include your CDT number on your CE certificate when sending it in and please retain a copy for your records.  Contact NBC at (800) 684-5310 with additional questions on reporting your hours.


CE certificates can be printed out onsite in the CE printing area of the exhibit hall or after the meeting at www.hinman.org.
