The goal of Sac County Learning is to offer high-quality educational resources delivered in a convenient and easy to use manner.
The inaugural video on the site is “Protect Your Sweet Smile: Sugar-Sweetened Beverages & Oral Health” - a webinar designed to assist dental professionals in guiding their clients to choose healthier drink options. Upon completion, dental professionals will receive one hour of continuing education credit approved by the Dental Board of California.
This project is funded, in part, by a grant from the California Department of Public Health – Office of Oral Health. Proceeds generated by course attendance are used to sustain the costs of administrating continuing education credit hours.
