Dentistry in London
  • 28% of the national output of dentists are from London UG schools
  • London deanery is the only deanery to train for all 13 dental specialties
  • We provide and commission continuing professional development (CPD) for the whole dental team
  • London trains 250 Dental Foundation trainees per year

      • DF2 bundle out for tender. Lead Providers have been signed on to the framework
  • The hope and anticipation is that LPs have engaged with existing LEPs
  • The SoR and draft ITT have addressed quality issues, training in more than one setting, mapping and delivery of the DF curriculum

Benefits & Challenges of the C/P separation – DF1
  • DF1 training within the primary care setting raises contractual challenges
  • There are no natural LPs for DF1 and therefore development of the market will be key
  • An opportunity perhaps to pilot the C/P separation within
  • primary care in both GDS and GP using consortia.
  • For dentistry an opportunity for new ways of delivering DF1 training with clear water between commissioner and provider
benefits and challenges of the c p separation cpd
Benefits and challenges of the C/P separation - CPD
  • The dental part of the deanery, provides courses and CPD to the whole
  • dental team. Cf medicine
  • This is done via dental tutors, and DCP (dental care professional )
  • tutors who are linked to the sectors of London
  • Poor performance and referral from GDC, PCTs etc is managed by the
  • deanery. Will this be commissioned with Dental CPD?
  • e-Wisdom is a valuable resource for revalidation. PDP setting to inform the need for CPD is essential
