Developing your career
'If you fail to plan you plan to fail'. How true, but most dental professionals do not plan their CPD. The GDC recommends this, and it is part of the enhanced CPD scheme coming into effect for dentists on 1 January 2018 and DCPs on 1 August 2018.
We have developed apps for two professional organisations: the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy, and the Dental Technologists’ Association. These enable the user to formulate a realistic personal development plan (PDP), identify relevant CPD activities and then record and reflect on them. You then identify new CPD activities and so on; a 'virtuous spiral'.
The good news is that you do not have to be a member of the BSDHT to use its app. Simply download, install and enjoy it!
Wherever you are, you can now plan, record, reflect and assess the impact of your CPD, helping you to develop your career.
