2017 BAOS Dental Core CPD Course 

 The GDC recommend that all registered dental professionals should complete a minimum amount of verifiable CPD per five-year cycle in the following core subjects:
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Radiography/Radiation Protection)
  • Decontamination/Disinfection
  • Legal and Ethical Issues
  • Handling Complaints                                         

These are  GDC recommended “core” CPD topics that all registrants must have covered during their five year cycle-why not cover all of them in one short break  in Edinburgh?
