Are dentists, dental specialists and all of the dental team required to complete CPD activities?

The Dental Board of Australia guidelines apply to all dentists, dental therapists, dental hygienists, dental specialists, oral health therapists and dental prosthetists except those who have one of the following types of registration:

  • Non-practising registration
  • Limited registration in the public interest or
  • Student registration.

Are administrative staff, dental assistants or practice managers required to complete CPD activities?

There is currently no requirement for non-registered dental practice staff to participate in or record their CPD activities.

ADAQ encourages dental staff to participate in training and CPD activities and events. It is recommended a record of any events and courses attended is maintained and any statements of attendance received are retained.

All attendees at ADAQ events will receive a Statement of Attendance.

The ADA Inc. “Manage Your CPD” service is available to member dentists only.
