All personnel involved with dental CBCT imaging (dentists, dental nurses with the CDR, dental hygienists and dental therapists) are required to take Level 1 (Core) training in Dental CBCT.


This course is designed for practitioners wanting to start using CBCT and referrers of CBCT. The course is designed from the latest FGDP “guidance notes for dental practitioners” CBCT syllabus and the European Academy of DentoMaxilloFacial Radiology. When coupled with Professional Conferences’ 6 hour ‘IRMER course’ delegates will have completed the level 1 certification. The CBCT course gives 7 hours of verifiable CPD and is delivered over a blended format with 4 hours of online lectures, which can be watched live or recorded, followed by interactive 3 hour session completed by delegates in their own time, including a short multiple choice assessment with feedback to reinforce learning. The program satisfies the current UK training requirements for dental CBCT.

Aims and Objectives:

  • Explain the relative risks of CBCT and the radiation dose to patients when using a modern CBCT machine.
  • Describe the indications for CBCT and the role in diagnosis, treatment planning and consent.
  • Understand the regulatory requirements under IRMER and how to comply with these.
  • Begin to develop viewing skills by manipulating CBCT software.

This talk satisfies the GDC’s learning outcomes:

A – Effective communication with patients, the dental team, and others across dentistry, including when obtaining consent, dealing with complaints, and raising concerns when patients are at risk

B – Effective management of self, and effective management of others or effective work with others in the dental team, in the interests of patients at all times; providing constructive leadership where appropriate

C – Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice

D – Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the dental profession and put patients’ interests first
