Can London Dental Institute Courses be used as evidence of Continuing Professional Development?

LDi diploma programmes have been designed to provide in depth teaching on their relevant fields of practice, a recommendation for enhanced cpd courses. CPD certificates are provided as documentary evidence and can be accessed through the virtual learning environment, which acts as a cpd tracker to maintain a log of the learning activities undertaken.

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and why is it important for dental professionals?

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) also known as Continuing Education (CE) is crucial for dental professionals as it ensures they keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date. As a regulatory requirement, it helps maintain high professional standards, ensuring dental practitioners remain competent, can adapt to new evidence-based practices, and continue to provide safe, effective patient care. Online dental courses offered by the London Dental Institute provide verifiable CPD. A record of certificates obtained throughout the course can be accessed via the VLE and can be either downloaded or printed for submission as evidence of CPD activity.

How can dental professionals benefit from Dental CPD courses?

Dental professionals can benefit from CPD by gaining new knowledge, refining their clinical skills, and staying abreast of industry trends. This continuous learning process ensures high-quality patient care and helps meet licensing and certification requirements. LDi diplomas provide in-depth teaching on a variety of advanced clinical topics, which goes beyond the level of teaching provided on shorter cpd courses.

Is implant dentistry covered in LDi courses?

Implant dentistry is included within the teaching curriculum of the Diploma in Aesthetic & Restorative dentistry, with a focus on restoring dental implants and within the Diploma in Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopaedics with a focus on the orthodontic-restorative interface and the integration of implant dentistry for complex cases and hypodontia. The upcoming planned diploma course on oral surgery and dental implantology will cover a wide range of implant dentistry topics in more detail.

How can studying aesthetic dentistry improve my dental practice?

Aesthetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of teeth and smiles. Integrating aesthetic dentistry into a practice can attract new patients, improve patient satisfaction, and contribute to the overall success of the dental business.

What is the significance of a CPD tracker in professional development?

A CPD tracker is a tool that helps clinicians, therapists, and hygienists monitor their progress in continuous professional development, ensuring compliance with relevant standards and facilitating convenient planning for future learning. After enroling on an LDi diploma course, dentists are given access to the virtual learning environment, which stores and records CPD certificates as they are achieved.

How do CPD certificates benefit dental professionals in managing their career progression?

CPD certificates play a pivotal role in career management, offering tangible evidence of your commitment to staying informed and relevant in the ever-evolving dental landscape. It is important to maintain a log of the CPD activities undertaken for professional development and regulatory reasons.

How can continuing professional development help dental professionals lead their teams towards the successful implementation of new equipment and techniques?

Dental professionals can take the lead by participating in our courses, acquiring the knowledge and skills needed to manage and guide their teams through the successful implementation of new equipment and techniques. The London Dental Institute believes that to provide effective patient care it is essential that communication and cooperation exists across the whole dental team. LDi diploma programmes aim to teach advanced clinical techniques to dentists combined with the skills required to execute these in day to day clinical practice with the help of technicians, dental nurses and other members of the dental team.

What is the Enhanced CPD Scheme, and how does it differ from traditional CPD?

Enhanced CPD is a structured approach to Continuing Professional Development set out by the general dental practice in the UK. Under the enhanced cpd scheme, dental professionals engage in verifiable CPD activities relevant to their practice. It goes beyond traditional CPD by emphasising the importance of measurable and impactful learning experiences. LDi courses are open to both UK and international dentists and you do not have to be registered with the GDC in the UK to participate in an LDi training programme.

What aspects of tooth whitening are covered in the LDi courses, and how can they be implemented in practice?

The London Dental Institute Diploma in Aesthetic & Restorative Dentistry includes extensive teaching material and clinical cases on teeth whitening and other minimally invasive approaches to improving tooth shade. The postgraduate programme provides verifiable dental cpd as set out by the enhanced CPD scheme from the general dental council UK. Dentists enrolled on the course are provided with CPD certificates as they progress through the course modules, with cpd certificates logged within the VLE online learning platform.

Are London Dental Institute Courses exclusively for dentists, or can other dental professionals, such as dental hygienists or dental nurses enrol?

Our postgraduate courses are designed exclusively for dentists to meet the needs of dental practitioners. While we currently focus on dentists, we appreciate the interest from other dental professionals. We acknowledge the value of the entire dental team, whether they’re a dental technician, dental assistant or dental nurse, and appreciate their interest.
