CPD in dentistry will be the focus of a national conference being held by the GDC on Tuesday 17 April 2012.

A wide range of speakers from across the four UK countries will consider CPD and professionalism, the effectiveness of CPD in dentistry and how it contributes to quality dental care, and examining quality and access to CPD. The conference will also consider registrant perspectives on CPD.
