All change for 2017: a brand new website

The Dental Channel 2017 websiteThis website has served us well, but technology moves on and it's time for an update. We have been listening and working on a new service, which will be launched in January.

Our verifiable CPD courses, both live and on-demand, remain our core service but greatly enhanced. These are complemented by a brand new community, offering a unique combination of formal and informal learning. There are so many major and minor improvements that it's easiest to have a look, including the new blog.

Our new premium service for 2017 is the Complete 365 subscription, providing 365 days access to our live and on-demand courses. This is complemented by the Core 365 subscription, offering numerous on-demand courses in all the GDC 'core' topics.  We also offer discounts for team subscriptions.

Something for everyone

Dentist, nurse and patientThere’s plenty for all members of the team, whether dentist, dental care professional or administrator. All our modules are valid for verifiable CPD and all the General Dental Council's (GDC) ‘core’ subjects are covered. Browse our catalogue and see for yourself.

If you are a member of the public ask for your copy of Caring for your Mouth the next time you visit your dentist or hygienist.

Quality assurance

AwardsThe General Dental Council has recently highlighted the importance of quality assurance and choosing CPD actitivities wisely. In the E-learning Awards 2009 the judges remarked:

"The Dental Channel's provision of an excellent range of resources, and fine mix of multimedia e-learning, journals and meaningful assessments including webinars. Live webinars offer the online equivalent of evening lectures, with webcams, polling and chat ensuring that participants are actively engaged in learning. On-demand webinars provide edited versions of the live events, combined with quizzes and feedback"

Our courses not only meet but exceed the GDC's criteria for verifiable CPD. All our content is produced in conjunction with subject matter experts, and our evaluations help you reflect upon what you have learnt and how it is best followed-up. Our certification process requires you to engage with your learning so you can be confident that our certificates confirm this.

We do not issue CPD for scoring zero in a quiz, provide certification for hours of CPD that only takes a few minutes, or simply for being 'logged in'.

We have been been fortunate to have received consistent recognition from both the dental profession and e-learning industries for educational excellence that will give members confidence in our approach to CPD.


What do we offer?


Live webinarOur live webinars are similar to (but not the same as) traditional lectures. Meet online, learn from experts and join in the discussions with like-minded professionals.

Join in from your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone. No travelling, no geographical boundaries.

And we include recordings, so you can catch up if you missed it or wish to watch it again.


ScreenshotWe have a wealth of resources available on-demand (live webinar recordings, on-demand webinars and on-demand courses). Mostly derived from our live webinars, they are accessible at any time. Pause, rewind and review at your convenience. Spend five minutes or an hour. It’s up to you. Our system remembers what you have done so there’s no getting lost.

Our on-demand webinars provide quizzes to complement the presentations. They are carefully crafted to help you check that you have understood the key points, provide feedback and of course provide additional CPD.


BSDHT and DTA appsWe have developed some great career-building apps for members of the British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy and Dental Technologists Association.

Create your own PDP (personal/professional development plan), record your CPD, identify what you have learnt and how it should be followed up.

The apps also keep you in touch with your society; get your news, updates and social media fix wherever you are!

Available on iOS and Android from iTunes and Google Play stores.

Oral health education

Caring for your MouthCaring for your mouth, developed in conjunction with the British Dental Health Foundation, provides concise oral health information in a video format.

Available in two versions, one for the practice environment and one for patients to view at home, ten short videos deliver key messages about oral hygiene for children and adults across the age spectrum.
