Introduction Continuing competency continues to be a concern for practitioners, educators, and regulatory agencies alike. One important measure of continuing competency is the application of current clinical evidence in practice. Continuing education courses are a common vehicle for the dissemination of clinical evidence to practitioners. Specifically, clinical continuing education courses are well suited to provide an opportunity to practice new skills on patients as they may be applied subsequently in practice. This study was conducted to see whether a specific clinical continuing education course that included an interactive element could change dental hygiene practice, and thereby contribute to bridging the gap between emerging research, technology, and professional practice.
