The ADA CERP Committee has again recognized OAIDT for its advanced level of quality CE, the only study club of its kind in northeast Ohio to achieve this distinction.  The renewal process is lengthy but the result reflects the membership’s commitment to Success Through Sharing.  Dr. Papandreas founded the study group a decade ago to foster improved care for all patients in northeast Ohio.  Since its inception the organization has provided thousands of hours of continuing education to both dentists but their staff.  During a recent interview regarding OAIDT Dr. Papandreas noted, “the average study group across the U.S.A. barely survives 2 years, the continued strength of our club after a decade of service to our professional community is a testament to our commitment to the best care possible for our patients.’
