In many countries around the world, practising dentistry is only permitted after acquiring a dental licence and the UK is no exception to this rule. Moreover, continuing professional development (CPD for short) is required for dentists and dental professionals registered on the General Dental Council (GDC) registry.
There are many institutes, professional bodies and organisations that offer dental CPD in Watford, including Wisbora Conferences. With a choice of courses in various aspects of dentistry, from orthodontics and dental implants to periodontics, as well as seminars on practical aspects of running a dental practice, such as dental accounting, dentist income protection, and effective leadership and management, dental CPD aims to encourage dental professionals to become conscious and proactive about their careers.
What is the purpose of engaging dental professionals in dental CPD in Watford?
Dental CPD exists for many reasons, but the most important of them is to guarantee patient safety. Engaging in dental CPD in Watford confirms that both academic and practical qualifications do not become outdated or obsolete, allowing dental professionals to continue their training, regardless of their age or professional level.
Dental professionals who have undergone dental CPD are more likely to deliver safe and high-quality treatments.
Dental CPD courses can promote and maintain the competence of the dental practice as a whole, as well as provide structure and support to all the dental professionals involved. Last but not least, CPD courses and seminars enable dental professionals to network, build professional relationships and learn from each other.
Mandatory and morale-boosting
Dental CPD in Watford helps dentists and other dental professionals (nurses, hygienists, technicians) become more competent. The amount and quality of training provided will increase their confidence in their skills and will complement their career aspirations. This can help boost the morale of a dental team. Moreover, dental CPD allows individuals to better adapt changes in the industry, which benefits their career planning and overall professional development.
Taking the time to complete dental CPD, whether a dentist needing to rack up 100 hours over 5 years or a dental nurse needing to complete half that over 5 years, needn’t be a burden but can in fact be a positive learning experience.
