Extended duties courses

People following a course

We offer a variety of courses which will enable registered dental care professionals (DCP) to develop additional skills in line with the General Dental Council (GDC) Scope of Practice guidance.

DCPs should only carry out a task or type of treatment or make decisions about a patient's care if they have the necessary skills and knowledge and are competent and trained to do so.
