GSDM does not conduct refunds for application fees or seat deposits for any of our programs, including International Preceptorship, Specialty Treatment Center Observation Program, Postdoctoral Preceptorship Program, or the Dental Assistant Training Program.

CE will grant a full refund if the School must cancel a course due to unforeseen circumstances. The School will contact all registrants at the time of cancellation. CE is not responsible for reimbursement of a non-refundable airline ticket or other travel arrangements if a course is cancelled.

Continuing Dental Education Credits
