The following important information may help you decide if Expanded Functions Level 2 is right for your office:

  1. Class size is limited to 25 participants with a minimum of 10 participants to hold the course.
  2. You will be required to provide documentation prior to the course that you have completed the following Level 1 procedures – 
    1. Placement and removal of gingival retraction material.
    2. Fabrication, temporary cementation, and removal of provisional restorations. 
    3. Applying cavity liners and bases and desensitizing agents. 
    4. Applying bonding systems.
    5. Placement of temporary restorative materials. 
  3. Participants also must have a sponsoring dentist to complete the clinical portion of the course, and your sponsoring dentist will be required to attend an online (virtual) Orientation Session during the first module/weekend.
  4. All modules in Level 2 must be completed to become Level 2 Certified.  This includes operative and pediatric dentistry modules.  The course is 117 credit hours over 4 weekends.
  5. Schedules will be available at a later date. 
  6. Once your registration has been accepted, you will receive further instructions for the Level 2 course.
  7. There will be some courses provided online prior to your arrival to the UI College of Dentistry and you will be required to pass a pre-test prior to the first weekend.
  8. We understand that this is a very tight timeframe to complete the course – however, we feel this is important in order to maintain continuity of the course completion.  We will have one weekend for makeup if necessary (i.e., snow cancellation).
  9. Above, under Documentation, is an FAQ sheet from the Iowa Dental Board for your review – this will help answer some of your questions.
  10. All parts of this CE course will be held at the College of Dentistry, including the Saturday sessions which will be held in the Simulation Clinic at the College of Dentistry in Iowa City. The topics of the modules are subject to change.
