Safeguarding and child Protection training for Dental Staff

Children in Wales, on behalf of the Postgraduate Department deliver Safeguarding Children training to dental practices throughout Wales.  Our specialist trainers are based in various parts of Wales to ensure coverage for dental practices, wherever sited.  The training lasts for 2.5 hours and covers the legislative framework for safeguarding and child protection; the roles and responsibilities of dental staff; understanding the different types of abuse; recognising the signs and symptoms and how to make referrals and record concerns.

The training involves an interactive presentation with activities and debate.  Participants are encouraged to raise their concerns with our experienced trainers and debate issues that they have found troubling and need additional guidance on.  The training is relevant to all staff within the dental practice and offers an opportunity for discussion with the trainer.

For more information about this training, please contact training@childreninwales.org.uk or call us on 029 2034 2434.

“In respect of the atmosphere, it’s a horrible topic to discuss but the trainer managed to keep it light.”  – Dentist
