Dentinaltubules is the most HELPFUL dental community in the world. We create videos (TubulesTalks), TubulesLive, study clubs, courses and congresses to HELP you with the knowledge to answer your questions

In this question, I post about it myself. Everytime I get so many people asking what they should choose as a course and how will they know if it is a good course or not?

Below is the question. So let us have a discussion on some steps you should use to choose the right courses but first here is the question....

To answer this, let me revert you to this new article : the GDC releasing the results of their review of the CPD literature. Click here to view the article. Decisions on CPD are best made when you can idenfity your learning needs. You really need to do a good assessment of your learning needs and your gaps in your skill and knowledge. Here check this video below, which is part of the Tubules Intelligent PDP series and focuses on learning needs

Additionally, I have done a video about how to choose the right course. Here it is....

Finally let's look at some of the courses, study club and more that we have put up in 2019
