I have found a website in partnership with Oral B which offers FREE ONLINE CPD!

Firstly, you have to register to access the courses, but there are at least 90 different ones aimed at dental nurses in a wide variety of topics, including the recommended core CPD, ranging from 1 to 4+ hours of CPD each. After answering the questions set after each course, you can print off a certificate for your records so you are able to class this as verifiable CPD.

The address is
www.dentalcare.com/en-US/conteduc/conteduc.jspx

Take a look as this is definitely a great way of increasing your CPD records free of charge!!

I tried to register on this site but I couldnt get past the telephone number that you had to register- seems you need a USA number, how did you get round this?
Thanks for tip

I must admit I had a problem when I first encountered this. It just wouldn't accept telephone numbers beginning 01 or (=44)01. The only way I managed to overcome this was to enter a mobile phone number. It worked ok for me then.

I had a go a doing my first course from there today and found it ok. I answered the online test after without and problems and successfully downloaded and printed a certificate after.

You should be ok with accessing the website now, but any problems give me another shout! Good luck!

would US CPD acually count here in the Uk as they probably have different procedures?

I got it to work with my mobile number, but had to drop the the 0

eg. if mobile is 07654 123456, then enter it as 7654 123456

thanks for the tip with the telephone number, I have now managed to
register, but not sure if it will count as verifiable CPD in the UK.
Also where do you get the oral B booklets please. :unsure:

If you mean the Oral B booklets that are connected to the Stephen Hancock site, then I think they only issue one a year.
