In compliance with our certification requirements, PCC annually reviews our DVD library to see if the concepts and techniques are current. If a video no longer represents the current clinical standards, the title is discontinued. We are unable to predict if upcoming technology will rapidly replace any given topic; therefore, we cannot place a definitive expiration date on the CE for your DVD purchase. Some concepts are slow to change, thus these DVDs will remain in our catalog for many years. Some concepts experience rapid growth, and we may discontinue the title after a short time. PCC will honor CE for the lifetime of the video, or within 6 months of purchase, whichever is longest.
Download a .pdf copy of the post test from our website. If you have an online account, your CE tests for all recent online purchases are available on your account page, under "My CE Tests". The "My CE Tests" page will also grade all your test submissions immediately, and maintain a record of your submitted tests, and allow you to download your certificate for all the passed tests.

70% or higher is a passing grade, and you will be mailed a completion certificate for your records.
How long do I have to take the test for my video?
Each video is evaluated annually to see if the concepts and techniques are current. If a video no longer represents current clinical standards, the title is discontinued. We are unable to predict if upcoming technology will replace any given topic; therefore, we cannot place a definitive expiration date on the CE video test. Some concepts are slow to change, thus these videos will remain in our library for many years. Some concepts experience rapid growth, and we may discontinue the title after a short time. You may take a video's CE test at any time it's currently sold. Upon a title's discontinuance, you will be given 6 month's warning to complete your test before it is no longer available.
How many CE units can I receive for each video?
To help you and your staff obtain your CE requirements, PCC designates 2 CE hours for every "V-Code" video. The tests are available for download or to take online. Each video purchase allows one person to take the test for no extra charge. A passing score of 70% or higher is required.
Can I have my associate (partner, staff) take the test for credit too?
One test is included with the regular video purchase price. If additional tests are required, the following fees apply: $25 per test per dentist (limit 1 extra dentist per video purchase); $10 per test per auxiliary (Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienists, Lab Technicians - no limit on auxiliary tests). No additional tests are available for subscription purchases, only the video subscriber may take the test for CE credit.
If additional tests are required, you must download the test, return to PCC with the appropriate fees, and allow 2-3 weeks for grading and certificate return.
