WHY IS CPD IMPORTANT IN DENTISTRY

Continuing professional development (CPD) is how dentists maintain, enhance and expand their knowledge, experience, and skills and develop the personal and professional qualities they need throughout their careers. It enables them to provide high-quality care and services that patients and the public trust to be the best and safest. As a dental professional, it is obliged to maintain and develop your professional knowledge and skills and maintain patients’ confidence through trusted quality services!

According to the dental board of Australia, it is required that dental professionals meet the board’s continuing professional development registration standard, in effect since 1st December 2015. The standard applies to all dentists, dental specialists, dental hygienists, dental therapies, oral health therapists and dental prosthetists, except those who hold one of the following types of registration:

• Non-practicing registration

• Limited registration in the public interest

• Limited registration to sit an examination, or

• Student registration

Dental practitioners are required to complete a minimum of 60 hours of cpd over a three-year CPD cycle. The start and end dates of the three-year CPD cycle are as follows:

1. Current CPD cycle: 1st December 2019 to 30th November 2022

2. Next CPD cycle: 1st December to 30th November 2025

3. CPD during Covid-19: The Covid-19 has affected CPD events and courses leading to a shortage of learning through CPD. The board encourages practitioners to continue cpd relevant to their practice where possible.

However, Nexlec provides a range of dental cpd courses that are through an online platform and face to face. Check out our dental page to see what CPD course you can do!
