Almost 40,000 dental care professionals (DCPs) come to the end of their first five year cycle of continuing professional development (CPD) and the General Dental Council needs them to log their hours.
CPD is a legal requirement and on the 31 July 2013 dental care professionals must have completed 150 hours of CPD.
- 14,831 (37%) DCPs have logged more than the minimum hours (including 50 verifiable)
- 4,423 (11%) DCPs have logged no hours
- Dental technicians are currently the least likely to have logged their hours – 22% have not yet declared any (GDC database, 18 December 2012)
CPD records must be kept for five years after the end of the cycle in which they were completed, as registrantsmay be selected for audit.
