Bergen County Dental Society
NEEDS ASSESSMENT & COURSE EVALUATION
When planning future dental continuing education for the Bergen County Dental Society, the first
step involves identifying a particular need of a target group. Surely you can see that the needs of our
society would be quite different from, let’s say, the needs of our physician counterparts, not only in
the scope of the continuing education provided, but also the particular statewide regulations within
each group which sets the parameters for such continuing education. A NEEDS ASSESSMENT is
therefore utilized. A systematic set of procedures that are used to determine the particular needs of a
target group, examine their nature and causes, and set priorities for future action. They are conducted
to help THE BCDS Continuing Education Committee and the Executive Council identify and select the
right type of continuing education before actually conducting the continuing education event.
Important also in the decision making process is your valued input. Not only for supplying us with information
concerning your particular needs, but also in evaluating the continuing education seminars
After each event, there are forms distributed, one to evaluate the lecture you have just attended and
another to help identify your needs for future events.
Please follow the links below to go to their respective pages. We need your assistance and we
THANK YOU in advance.
