Dental CPD Courses

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) can support dentists and dental care professionals in maintaining and updating their skills and knowledge. Regularly completing dental CPD courses may also contribute to the delivery of better quality dental care.

Dentists must carry out at least 250 hours of CPD every five years. At least 75 of these hours need to be ‘verifiable’ CPD

Dental professionals including Dental Nurses must carry out at least 150 hours of CPD every five years. At least 50 of these hours need to be ‘verifiable’ CPD

Verifiable CPD is an activity for which there is documentary evidence that one has undertaken the CPD and that the dental CPD course has:

  • Concise educational aims and objectives
  • Clear anticipated outcomes
  • Quality controls

SmileWisdom dental CPD courses are all ‘verifiable’ and meet the highest educational standards.  They are delivered by experienced and professional UK-qualified tutors.

In-Practice Training

We specialise in dental education. We also know the dental profession inside out; we know how challenging finding the extra time for staff training might be. This is why in addition to running courses at the BDA and online, we can also deliver dental CPD courses to your team directly at your practice. These courses are tailor-made for you and will be adapted depending on the experience levels and the number of participants.

What is Continuous Professional Development?

Continuous professional development is often called CPD for short. Dental Nurses must complete at least 150 hours of CPD every 5 years to ensure they fulfill the terms of your GDC registration. Find out how it works, how many hours are required and what you need to do to ensure your GDC registration stays secure.

Once you have attained that ever-important GDC number, you must keep up with your CPD (continuous professional development). If you’re a trainee dental nurse you may still find these useful even if you can’t collect CPD hours yet.
