Montreal, Quebec – July 8, 2020. Medicom Group (“Medicom”), one of the world’s leading manufacturers of surgical and N95 masks, personal protective equipment (PPE) and infection control solutions, is proud to announce that it has received the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD)’s Program Approval for Continuing Education (PACE). Dental professionals in the U.S. and Canada can now earn CE credits toward their annual licensure requirements while benefiting from Medicom’s three decades of scientific expertise.
The AGD PACE program approves continuing dental education (CDE) organizations based on 13 rigorous standards and provides dental professionals with a reliable basis for selecting quality programs. It also promotes the ongoing improvement of continuing dental education and provides dental regulatory agencies with a sound basis for uniform acceptance of CE credits, as mandated by licensing jurisdictions.
“The accreditation of Medicom to offer official CE courses further validates our expertise and reputation as a valued resource,” affirmed Ouriel Levy, Executive Vice President, Commercial and Global President, Dental. “Today’s announcement is just the latest example of our commitment to providing healthcare professionals with the most reliable infection control solutions, as well as the training and education resources to further their understanding of protocols and proper product usage.”
Medicom has been offering live training and education to end users since the company was founded in 1988. As busy dental professionals shift towards on-demand learning to stay current on the latest in infection control while earning required credits, Medicom will launch an online CE education program through its new website this fall.

“Medicom is committed to launching our official, certified education and training program to service the dental community as a whole, including Dental professionals, as well as our distribution partners’ Sales and Customer Service teams to help keep our entire network better informed and up-to-date,” stated Levy.
