Dental Nurse Career Development

Personal Development Plans for Dental Nurses and Dental Care Professionals

For Dental Nurses, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a fundamental part of the role. Choosing CPD courses relevant to your practice is easy – if you know where your career is heading. 

How you can create a Dental Personal Development Plan

In order to choose the best CPD courses for you, it’s important to reflect on your current role; your responsibilities and how you’d like to progress moving forward. 

For those of you who are happy in your current role, this may mean staying up to date with the latest techniques and legislations to maintain the required level of Dental Nursing. 

Others, however, who may be looking to progress or take a side step into another dental field or role. If this is you, you will need to carefully consider what skills and experience are required for such a role. 

This may involve seminars, online training, in-house practical learning, and personal study – all of which contribute to your Annual Enhanced CPD
