The SLSA quiz consists of 15 questions based on the year’s Program.

There is only ONE correct answer per question. Please circle the appropriate letter on the quiz card.

All provincial licensing authorities currently recognize the SLSA Program for CE credits. The completed quiz card should be returned to Oral Health by December 31, 2000. No cards will be accepted after this deadline. Quiz answers will be published in the January, 2001 issue of Oral Health. Please use the correct postage of 46-cents when sending your card back. Names and license numbers of participating dentists will be sent to the appropriate licensing authority.

It should be noted that Ontario dentists are required to enclose a stamped, self-addressed return envelope with the completed quiz so that the card can be certified and returned to the dentist for CE credits.

This card should be kept in the dentists’ CE file and referred to when filling out the RCDS Continuing Education Reporting Form each September. Cards received without a stamped, self-addressed return envelope will not be processed for CE credits, nor will they be returned to the dentist.
