guest post – GDC enhanced CPD – what it means and what to do about it

I’m frequently contacted by people who have products and services of relevance to my clients. For over 20 years I have maintained a policy that I do not accept introducers fees or commissions – I simply broadcast and comment on good ideas.

Hi Chris

I hope you’re well.

As you probably know, the GDC is introducing some significant changes to CPD in 2018. It will affect all dentists from 1st January 2018 and all DCPs from 1st August 2018.

I’ve put together a short presentation to help explain the changes and how they’ll affect you. Please feel free to forward this to your colleagues if you think it will be useful.

There are 2 files for you to download:

Enhanced CPD – Slides

Enhanced CPD – Script

At the end of the presentation is a CPD QR Code and link so that you can get your certificate for 1 hour of verified CPD for learning about the new requirements.

If you’d like to print the QR Code out, you can download it from here:

I hope you find it helpful.

Kind Regards

Love Your CPD ❤️
