    Alumni Discount

    Detroit Mercy Dental alumni receive a 10% discount on most courses. The discount will automatically be applied to the tuition when you indicate you are an alumnus on the registration form.

    We are unable to guarantee the ability to make a correction to the tuition rate once you have registered for a course. Should an error have been made while registering for a course, please notify our office at your earliest convenience. We will make every effort to correct the problem or to apply a credit toward a future course.



    Dental educational institutions have an obligation to disseminate new knowledge related to dental practice. In so doing, some presentations may contain controversial materials or commercial references. Sponsorship of a continuing dental education course by the University of Detroit Mercy does not necessarily imply endorsement of a particular philosophy, procedure, or product by this institution. Continuing dental education courses do not necessarily reflect the philosophies of the University of Detroit Mercy pre-doctoral or post-doctoral training programs.

    The University of Detroit Mercy Institute for Advanced Continuing Dental Education reserves the right to change or cancel program offerings without notice. Should a significant change occur, every effort would be made to notify registered participants. In addition, fees listed are subject to change at any time.
