Welcome to Dental Update

The ultimate resource for relevant, evidence-based dentistry

Dental Update is the leading peer-reviewed clinical journal for the dentist in General Practice. It helps GDPs face everyday challenges which occur in the surgery, offering practical and relevant solutions and keeping practitioners informed of innovative developments and clinical procedures.

2018 Enhanced CPD

We are keen to help our members in making the transition to Enhanced CPD as smooth and painless as possible so we have introduced the following:

- All CPD certificates for CPD undertaken from January 2018 onwards (via Dental Update and Orthodontic Update) fully meet the new requirements

- All Dental Update and Orthodontic Update articles now clearly state which development outcome they relate to (A-D)

- We’ve created Guidance Notes which are available for members online

- We created online templates where members can log their CPD Activity, Personal Development Plan information and Field of Practice notes (and where any CPD, regardless of where undertaken, may be logged)

Leading Peer-Reviewed Dental Journal

Dental Update provides a range of information and is an invaluable resource, not just focusing on the complexities of restorative and preventative dentistry but also covering specialties including endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics and periodontics, and all delivered in a clear and readable tone
