Organizations with 50+ Continuing Education Registered Smiles for Life Users
About the map:
The above map shows the number of CE registered users on the Smiles for Life website between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017. States with higher numbers of Smiles for Life users have darker shading. Dots represent institutions (primarily universities) with 50 or more CE registered users during the year (associated list).
- There were over 18,000 CE registered users in 2016-2017, representing a 24 percent increase from the previous year.
- Smiles for Life usage in 2016-2017 spread across all 50 U.S. states; more than three-quarters of the states had over 100 CE registered users.
- The map highlights the important role that universities play in spreading Smiles for Life—55 of the 72 dots on the map are universities with 50 or more CE registered users. All 72 high-user institutions are listed in the table below the map.
Because the map is based only on numbers of CE registered users tracked on the website, it represents an undercount of Smiles for Life utilization. Many individuals complete the online courses without registering on the website, some do not obtain CE credit for the course(s), and some organizations download the courses for use in academic settings or workplace trainings in which users do not register on the website. These users are not included in the website data.
