Sandra Berger

I am a dental hygienist and my company, CE Approved, is a continuing education concierge company. My expertise is providing solutions and support in all aspects of continuing education in the dental industry. I work with dental speakers who want to get their course or courses approved. When they do, they gain credibility and generate more business. When a speaker or company is ready, I will work with them to become their own AGD or ADA approved provider. As an inhouse approved provider, they have more control and opportunities for profit. In fact, as a dental professional myself, I have completed applications and received approval from every major dental agency and the American Nursing Association over forty times. Clients often share that I am a trusted resource for all things CE, dot the i’s and cross the t’s, and always have their back when it comes to consistency and dreaded compliance. On a personal note, I love to travel in style and game-the-system when it comes to points, cards, and memberships, including Dosh and Rakuten.
