Training & Events


CPD is lifelong learning, and CPD participation is essential for your personal and professional development. Active participation enhances your skills and knowledge, and expands your professional networks. 

To maintain registration with the Dental Board of Australia, you are required to undertake 60 hours of CPD over a three-year cycle, and the Board encourages you to maintain an average of 20 hours per year. The requirements are pro rata for those who begin practising mid-cycle.

The current CPD cycle runs from 1 December 2019 to 30 November 2022.

We offer a range of affordable, quality CPD activities that meet the Dental Board’s requirements and are organised by dentists, for dentists
