Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the

Behaviour change for Oral Health


Welcome to this Dentaljuce course on Behaviour Change, much of which references the "Delivering better oral health" toolkit provided by NHS England.

The course focuses on how to use behaviour change as a strategy in prevention of dental diseases, and discusses the techniques and interventions that will help dental professionals achieve this difficult task.

The Behaviour Change online learning module has clear and concise aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes, listed below. These will appear on the Dentaljuce Enhanced CPD Certificate, along with the time spent, dates, and detailed topics you studied within the module. Certificates can be printed at any time, covering any range of dates. Dentaljuce CPD complies with the UK GDC's requirements for enhanced verifiable continuing professional development.
