Dental - United Kingdom

The General Dental Council is the statutory body which regulates the dental profession in the United Kingdom. The GDC has statutory responsibility for dental education, registration, professional conduct and practice.

As part of its regulatory duties, the Council maintains the Dental Register for dentists and Specialists Lists. Only those listed in these publications may practice dentistry in the UK.

The only way to enter these registers is by obtaining Registration from the General Dental Council of United Kingdom.

There are two types of registration.

Full Registration allows you to practice as a dentist in the United Kingdom without any restriction. Full registration in the Dentists Register is necessary for dental work not covered by temporary registration. Full registration can be achieved either by holding a recognized degree or diploma or by passing the statutory examination of the Council.

Temporary Registration enables you to practice dentistry in the United Kingdom for a limited period and in specified posts without the need to take further examinations. Every application for temporary registration is considered individually on its merits.

The International Qualifying Examination is the statutory examination of the Council. It provides a means of testing the knowledge and skill already possessed by a dentist who holds a qualification which does not admit him/her to the United Kingdom Dentists Register.

You must pass this examination to get Full Registration, though a few are exempt from the examination. You must also prove your knowledge in English by passing IELTS.
