CDEC Moves to an “Open Architecture” Format for Flexible Entry into the Workshop Courses
The Chesapeake Dental Education Center has adapted a new "open architecture" format allowing students greater scheduling flexibility. Register for just one workshop entering the series at any course topic to better fit your busy schedule. The workshop courses teach the practical skills necessary to support our Systematic Treatment Evaluation Protocol (STEP) used in restorative and esthetic dentistry. All three workshops are hands-on small-group sessions taught at our training facility in Davidsonville, MD.
About the Chesapeake Dental Education Center
Welcome to the Chesapeake Dental Education Center. CDEC is the culmination of the dental careers of Drs. Woody Wooddell and Joe Passaro. They have been in partnership for over three decades, and their thriving practice of restorative and esthetic dentistry has been dedicated to practice excellence, dental education and patient service.
"Woody" and "Joe" have studied under the best minds in dentistry and have assimilated their vast knowledge into a singular program proven to effectively diagnose the problem, develop an appropriate treatment plan and implement the optimum solution for any restorative or esthetic case.
Woody and Joe are full-time clinicians who have put what they've learned and the techniques they've developed into practice every day.

Their students learn not only concepts, but also how to implement what is taught in their own practices.
