It is important to remember that most regulatory bodies expect you to carry out CPD in subject areas in which you practice clinically. Aesthetics CPD allows you to do this at any time on any device!
It is your responsibility to do enough appropriate CPD to remain up to date and fit to practise in your work and to be able to demonstrate this at your appraisals. This applies whether you are in full-time or less than full-time practice.
You must have undertaken 35 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) relevant to your scope of practice in the three year period since your registration was last renewed, or you joined the register.
Under the Enhanced CPD Scheme 2018 dentists need to complete a minimum of 100 hours of verifiable CPD every five years.

A – Effective communication with patients and other across your team
B – Effective management of self and effective management of others or effective work with others in the dental team, in the interests of patients, providing constructive leadership where appropriate.
C – Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice.
D – Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the profession and put patients’ interests first.
