The article offers the author's insights on the role of distance learning (DL) in continuing education (CE) of courses such as dentistry. The author mentions that Chicago Dental Society (CDS) has presented real time demonstrations of dental procedures. He is critical that online courses offered on the web are not created equally and do not meet the standards from CDS for CE. He notes that DL and time-honored meetings offer advantages but great value remains in traditional educational meetings.
