CPD

Keeping skills and knowledge up to date throughout your career is at the heart of what it means to be a dental professional.  Continuing Professional Development (CPD) can help all dental care professionals maintain and update their skills, knowledge and behaviour throughout their working life. CPD may also contribute to the delivery of good quality care and service which patients and the public trust is safe and the best it can be. 

Undertaking CPD is a compulsory part of GDC registration and they also require any dental professional wishing to restore their registration to provide them with evidence of the CPD they have completed.

CPD helps to maintain public confidence in the dental register by showing that dental professionals are staying up to date and ensures that you can give your patients the best possible treatment and make an effective contribution to dentistry in the UK.

Bracon are able to help you with your CPD requirements by holding courses and lectures throughout the year with both our in-house technicians as well as visiting manufacturers and experts from around the world.
