Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

How does Dentaljuce meet the GDC Quality Requirements for Enhanced CPD?

The UK General Dental Council requires UK dental professionals to meet their requirements for enhanced verifiable CPD as outlined in their web site HERE. Part of this advice directs registants to ensuring the CPD provider they choose has rigorous quality controls in place.

The detail of their advice is regularly changed and updated, and Dentaljuce ensures it continues to meet and exceed the GDC's Quality Assurance requirements as a leading provider of Enhanced CPD.

Methods to monitor and evaluate content delivery
Our content is all delivered online after going through strict quality control measures, so unlike attended courses, we don't need to worry about whether our educator is below par on the day of the lecture.
Documentary evidence of aims, objectives, anticipated learning outcomes and quality controls provided to every participant for them to keep
Dentaljuce CPD certificates give all this information.
Content relating to anticipated learning outcomes throughout delivery
All Dentaljuce educational content is based on the module's learning outcomes.
Opportunities for participant reflection during activity
Dentaljuce has hundreds of reflection moments - every module has "pause points" in the form of reflective questions designed to activate the brain and get you thinking. And if you are not sure, the answer is available immediately you want it.
Assessment of learning
As you learn, you have the regular opportunity to answer both computer-marked MCQs and self-marked short-answer questions. Your score is constantly available and immediately updated with each one you get right.
