CPD Lorna Doone has a commitment to enhance and develop our professional abilities and skills, often referred to as CPD. It is a General Dental Council requirement that all dentists keep up to date by attending courses and conferences. We often have in-surgery training with experts coming in to teach all the staff about medical emergencies, cross infection control and the latest developments in dental products and techniques. As you can see, it can be very hands on with Nick keeping up to date with CPR training
