Institute

The five day Tucker Institute course is a fabulous introduction for dentists not familiar with the Tucker Techniques. Although suitable as an introductory course, current Tucker Academy members have benefited immensely from taking this course. If you are a member of the Academy but have never taken this course, please consider spending five days in Seattle or Vancouver with some of the best mentors available in North America. 48 participation hours in restorative dentistry will be awarded to the participant upon completion of this intense, challenging and highly rewarding five day instructional program. For more information, please contact Dr. Jane Wrinch, Director for the Tucker Institute Vancouver (drjaneswrinch@shaw.ca) or Ms. Cara Thayer, Administrator for the Tucker Institute Seattle (cara@tahessdds.com).

C.E. Credits The Academy maintains its accreditation with the Academy of General Dentistry so that the Annual Meeting and the study clubs meetings provide C.E. credits. At every study club meeting the dentist and patient need to sign a consent form which must be archived by the club secretary to be in compliance with the rules of the AGD accreditation
