More people access dental services more
   than any other healthcare service.
Oral health must be considered as a key
   component to general health care
                 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
Education to support service delivery
Where are we now?



o   DF2 bundle out for tender. Lead Providers have been
    signed on to the framework
o The hope and anticipation is that LPs have engaged with
existing LEPs
o The SoR and draft ITT have addressed quality issues,
training in more than one setting, mapping and delivery of the
DF curriculum
Benefits of the Commissioner /Provider
separation – DF2
o   Raising the profile of dentistry within the Lead providers

o Innovative programmes that will ensure training in more
than one setting


o An engagement with providers to raise standards

o The possibility of combined DF1 and DF2 programmes in
  the future
Benefits & Challenges of the C/P separation –
DF1

o DF1 training within the primary care setting raises contractual
challenges

o There are no natural LPs for DF1 and therefore development of the
market will be key

o An opportunity perhaps to pilot the C/P separation within
  primary care in both GDS and GP using consortia.

o For dentistry an opportunity for new ways of delivering DF1 training
with clear water between commissioner and provider
What are the challenges for dental education?
DF1
Benefits and challenges of the C/P separation -
CPD
o The dental part of the deanery, provides courses and CPD to the whole
  dental team. Cf medicine
o This is done via dental tutors, and DCP (dental care professional )
  tutors who are linked to the sectors of London

o Poor performance and referral from GDC, PCTs etc is managed by the
  deanery. Will this be commissioned with Dental CPD?

o e-Wisdom is a valuable resource for revalidation. PDP setting to
inform the need for CPD is essential
Thank you
