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
