Several states, including Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Jersey and Minnesota, have “gift” restrictions applicable to Healthcare Professionals. Effective November 15, 2017, members in those affected states are required to pay a fee to obtain continuing education credit through the Colgate Oral Health Network. This charge has been determined to be $20.00 per CE unit and can easily be paid with any major credit card.
As an attendee, you will require a computer with audio, a high-speed Internet connection and Adobe Flash player, which is already installed in 99% of computers.
Additionally we suggest installing the “Adobe Connect Add-in” which you can download here: https://www.adobe.com/support/connect/downloads-updates.html
Your webinar experience depends on your Internet connection speed. While most Internet connections will allow you to have an optimal webinar experience, if your internet connection speed or stability fluctuates during the webinar, your experience will be sub-optimal.
