What are the main CPD changes taking place in 2018

Tempdent’s Business Development Director, Dan Redland’s phone has been ringing off the hook with regard to the upcoming changes in CPD. So, we thought we would do a short interview with him to help answer all your burning questions.

What are the main CPD changes taking place in 2018:

“There are various changes happening in 2018 and we’ve been working really hard behind the scenes to create new content and packages to support dental staff to be ready.  The key changes are:

  • Non-verifiable CPD:  All CPD now needs to be verifiable. Non-verifiable CPD will no longer count toward CPD hours
  • Annual CPD Statement: You will need to submit an annual statement to the GDC confirming the number of hours CPD that you have undertaken that year. You have to submit this even if no hours have been undertaken.
  • Annual CPD hours: Each GDC registrant must complete a minimum of 10 hours CPD every 2 years. Failure to comply with this can result in your removal from GDC register.
  • Minimum Hours over 5-year cycle:

Why should you choose Tempdent to do your CPD?The GDCs enhanced CPD scheme commences for dentists from 1st January 2018 and for DCPs from 1st August 2018.

We’ve been delivering high quality courses to all of the dental team since 1999. We have a fantastic team of highly skilled dental trainers with years of experience and various specialisms.  This means that whilst we have standard CPDs available we are also able to put together bespoke workshops to meet your needs.

Who would benefit from Tempdent CPD Training?

Our CPD dental courses are accessible to all members of the dental team, whether you have just qualified as a dental nurse or you are an experienced dentist, hygienist or therapist.  We can tailor each course to your needs and offer a discount if you book 3 or more sessions. We welcome groups and individual bookings. All of our dental CPD courses provide GDC verifiable CPD hours, and individual certificates are issued at the end of each course.


How can I access Tempdent CPD?

We can deliver dental CPD courses at our London training centre or if it’s more convenient we can come to your workplace. Our in-house training is cost-effective, as up to 15 team members can participate.  It’s also a great team building tool as it allows you to get the whole team together!

Do you offer CPD online?

Yes, we’re really excited that we will shortly be launching a variety of GDC verifiable core CPD packages on our fantastic online platform. This will make CPD accessible to all dental professionals at all times.

  • Tempdent provided me with the most amazing help and support during my training. My assessor, Lynn really helped me through my course, she was very easy to approach. She had some brilliant tips and hits when it came to revising for my exams and I managed to qualify in just over a year which I do not think I could have done without such a great tutor. When I was really stuck on a project Lynn would make an arrangement for a support call where she broke down the project in a way I could understand what I had to do
    Shannon Feguson - Student
  • I have just finished my course with Tempdent and they were brilliant! Especially my assessor Anita, she always contacted me to make sure I was happy and on target, and was overall a brilliant support!
