Supporting documents for dental professionals

Dental professionals are strongly advised to be familiar with these documents to understand their CPD obligations for maintaining registration.
 
The guidance document gives dental professionals all the information they need to know, to understand the requirements of the CPD scheme over their CPD cycle.
 

All dental professionals must maintain a PDP which outlines their plans for learning and development. The GDC has developed a PDP template which dental professionals may use or find helpful, and covers all the minimum requirements of a PDP.

This document provides examples across each professional title, to show how the GDC’s PDP might be utilised depending on a dental professional’s title, role and patients.​
 

All dental professionals must keep a log of all verifiable CPD they have undertaken. The GDC has developed an activity log template which dental professionals may use or find helpful, and covers all the minimum requirements of an activity log.​​

This document provides examples to show how the GDC’s activity log template may be utilised.​
