​More than 2,500 dentists still to make CPD statement

22 January 2020


With less than a week to go to the deadline for dentists to make their annual or end-of-cycle statement, there are still more than 2,500 dentists yet to make a submission, the GDC has warned.


Enhanced CPD requires all dentists to make an annual statement confirming how many hours of CPD have been completed in the previous 12 months (even where that figure is 'zero'). They must also make a declaration that the CPD completed is relevant to their field of practice, a CPD record including a personal development plan has been kept, and the statement is full and accurate.


With the deadline of Tuesday 28 January 2020 fast approaching, dentists who have yet to make their annual or end-of-cycle statement are urged to do so as soon as possible. The quickest way to do this is via the online eGDC portal.


Neglecting to make a compliant annual statement could lead to you falling off the register and, therefore, no longer being able to practise in the UK. For further guidance and information visit the GDC's Enhanced CPD page.
