GDC speeds up process to reregister

  • Date: 13 June 2023

THE General Dental Council has made reregistration easier for dental professionals who have missed their annual renewal.

Dental professionals who have been off the register for less than 12 months and have always complied with CPD will be able to sign a declaration rather than provide a copy of their full CPD record in order to restore their registration.

The GDC says the change in process, which is already in place, will make reregistering quicker and easier for dental professionals who have not completed their annual renewal.

The regulator urges all dental care professionals to log onto eGDC to check how much CPD they need to complete before they renew their registration.

Jon Harris, GDC Associate Director, Registration, said: “I’m pleased that we’ve been able to make this small but important change to our process. We hope it will make a real difference for dental professionals who have always complied with and kept their CPD up-to-date, and result in a more straightforward experience to be restored to the register.”
