Dental CPD reminder

Fewer than eight months remain until nearly 40,000 dental care professionals (DCPs) will reach the end of their first five-year CPD cycle.

DCP must have completed 150 hours of CPD by 31 July and have declared those hours by 28 August or risk losing their GDC registration. So far 4,425 DCPs (11 per cent) have logged no hours.

The GDC is urging employers to remind DCPs of the coming CPD deadline. More information can be found at www.gdc-uk.org
