Have you heard that the Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) can help you save some BIG BUCKS in 2019 on continuing education from the LDA? If you are a W-2 employee, your employer can be reimbursed for the professional development you take with the LDA when it is held in Louisiana. The LWC will only reimburse the registration fees for employee dentists, hygienists or (other) staff. They will not reimburse for the employer/practice owner’s registration nor for any late fees. You or your employer must apply for the reimbursement 30-45 days BEFORE taking the course. You are allowed to register for the course during the application process with LWC. Approval from the Workforce Commission must be granted before the course is completed. You will have to turn in your course completion sheet to complete the process and be granted your reimbursement.
The LDA courses that you can apply for reimbursement from the LWC are:
Kick-Off C.E. - August 9, 2019, in Lafayette, LA
Last Chance Seminar – Tentative date: December 13, 2019, in Baton Rouge, LA

DENTISTS: The LA State Board of Dentistry has changed C.E. requirements for dentists as of Jan. 1, 2018. If your license renewed in December 2017, you will only be required to have 30 hours of C.E. every 2 years, however, all 30 hours must be clinical. Further, 20 of the 30 hours must be obtained in person (not online C.E.). If your license renews in December 2018, you can choose whether or not to submit the traditional 40 hours that includes practice management or you can select the newer requirement and log in 30 hours of all clinical C.E.
On-line event registrations and dues payments are processed when submitted. An on-line confirmation will display once the payment process has been approved.
Cancellation Requests prior to Early Registration Deadline (see specific meetings for specific dates)
• Refund requests for registration will be granted a full refund, less a $15 processing fee. The request must be received on or before each meeting's early registration date.
• Exceptions will not apply.
Cancellation Requests between Early Registration Deadline and the day before your meeting begins
• Refund requests for registration fees will be granted a 50% refund less a $15 processing fee. The request must be received no later than 4 p.m. on the day before your meeting begins.
