CPD and Foundation Dental
Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
The Dental School at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital runs a regular programme of lecture-based and hands on courses. These courses give dental professionals the opportunity to refresh their knowledge on core topics and learn new skills from highly regarded speakers.
All courses contribute between 3 and 6 hours towards a dental professional’s CPD. Previous courses have covered core topics such as NHS Rules and Regulations, Ethics, Medical Emergencies and Paediatric Dentistry, along with other topics such as Suture Removal & Wound Healing, Radiation Protection and Legislation, Composite Dentistry and Tooth Surface Loss.
Lecture-based courses are held in the Bob Champion Research and Education Building, with hands on sessions taking place in the Technical Skills Laboratory at the main hospital. We provide an average of 25-30 courses per year so you can be sure there will always be something of interest.
How to register
Bookings for CPD courses are via Intrepid and can be found by searching the date, location or name of the course.
The Dental School also administers the Foundation Training programme, which newly graduated dentists must complete in order to be able to register on the NHS dental list as a performer. The year-long programme enhances clinical and administrative competence by allowing newly graduated dentists to obtain experience in all areas of dentistry before considering further study, core dental or specialist training. The year also prepares young dentists for examinations such as the MFDS and the MJDF. 12 Foundation Dentists are employed each year by the trust and visit every Friday for teaching in the Bob Champion Research and Education Building and the Technical Skills Laboratory.
