"Institutions providing dental education have an obligation to disseminate new knowledge related to dental practice. In doing so, some information or presentations may include controversial materials or commercial references. The Department of Dentistry acknowledges that there is potential risk to participants using limited knowledge when incorporating new techniques and procedures into their practices, especially when the continuing education program has not provided them with supervised clinical experience in the techniques or procedures to ensure that they have attained competence. Sponsorship of continuing education courses by the Department of Dentistry of Wake Forest School of Medicine does not imply endorsement of a particular philosophy, product or procedure by this institution."
