  The Quiz:

If you achieve a score of 70% or higher (seven out of ten), you will receive one hour of Continuing Education (CE) credit accredited by the Arizona Dental Association. Each test is $20.00 for AzDA members and $40.00 for Non-AzDA members. A portion of the proceeds will be dedicated to supporting charitable dental events organized by the AzDA Cares Foundation. AzDA operates as a Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) provider under the guidance of the American Dental Association.
