Medical Emergency CPD (CPR / AED Training) for Dental Care Staff
Annual Medical Emergency CPD training is a requirement for Dental Care staff and those who work in Dental practices.
Our trainers regularly deliver our 3 hour CPR & AED course at Dental practices around the country. We’ve got to know some practices very well through visiting annually, making their annual update really easy to organise.
Our 3 Hour course is almost entirely practical, and covers Basic Life Support, CPR & AED. We often include some paediatric elements for practices that work with children too.
Whilst satisfying their annual Medical Emergency CPD Training requirements, our clients love the opportunity to practice CPR rather than just watching a trainer do it. They also find that practice using one of our trainer AEDs in small groups is really valuable.
It really empowers them to feel confident, should the worst happen.

General Dental Council Recommendations for Annual CPD
“The General Dental Council recommends two hours of CPD on Medical Emergencies, every year”
As a dental professional you must plan your CPD activity. The GDC has identified CPD topics that relate to many dental professionals in their field of practice.
The Resuscitation Council UK Quality Standards for Dental Practices
“All dental care staff should undergo ‘hands-on’ CPR, airway management and AED training annually.”
The Resuscitation Council UK Quality standards state that “Primary dental care providers, general dental practitioners and all other dental healthcare professionals should undergo training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) including basic airway management and the use of an AED“. It is recommended that clinical staff participate in ‘Hands-on’ simulation training and assessment. This training should be undertaken annually.
The Resuscitation Council UK Rules Regarding On-site AEDs at Dental Practices
The general public expects AEDs to be available in every healthcare setting, and primary dental care premises are no exception. All clinical areas should have immediate access to an automated external defibrillator (AED).
Training in resuscitation must be a fundamental requirement for dental practitioners, and other dental care professionals. All Dental practice staff’s should update their knowledge and skills in resuscitation at least annually.
