  • The date(s) that the CPD was undertaken

  • The total number of hours of CPD undertaken

  • The name of the professional who has participated in the CPD activity

  • That the CPD is subject to quality assurance, with the name of the person or body providing the quality assurance

What is Continuous Professional Development?
Continuous professional development is often called CPD for short. As a registered Dental Professional you must complete a certain number of CPD hours  every 5 years to ensure you 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 completing CPD courses useful even if you can’t collect CPD hours yet.
