We offer online CPD for dental therapists, dental assistants and oral hygienists.

Simply download and read the monthly articles, submit your answers online and print your certificate. (You need 70% to qualify.) You can earn up to 30 CPD points, including 10 Ethics. The articles remain available for 2 years.

Our CPD program is fully accredited and is recognized by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
