Pre-SmileCon Education
Add in-depth learning to your Las Vegas experience with our Pre-SmileCon Education Oct. 9-10. You do not need to be a registered SmileCon attendee to attend these programs.

CE Verification
After you attend a complete course, it will appear in your account on the Verify CE website. (The site “knows” you attended because your SmileCon badge is scanned at the door.) At the end of the course, listen for the host to read the verification code. You will need to enter this code in the Verify CE website. To log in, you will need to know your Registration ID and the email address you registered with.
