A look at how best to keep on top of your personal development.

Continuous development is essential for providing exceptional care over an entire career in implant dentistry. As the equipment and techniques around you change, it is important to keep up with the latest information in the field to continue delivering the best patient care.

Understanding CPD hours

General Dental Council (GDC) registration requires all dentists in the UK to complete 100 hours of verifiable continuous professional development (CPD) over five years. This ensures practitioners remain up-to-date with the latest developments and that high professional standards can be consistently met.

The GDC states that within each CPD cycle, dental professionals should refresh their knowledge surrounding medical emergencies, disinfection and decontamination, and radiography and radiation protection.

Alongside these key topics, it’s important to align other subjects with your needs. If you focus on implant restoration, the courses and lectures you elect to attend should cover relevant techniques and technologies.
