Asylum seekers and refugees

Asylum seeker and refugee membership is available for free until the applicant receives GDC registration. To qualify for this membership, you must have applied for or been awarded Asylum Seeker or Refugee status. You will not be currently working as a dentist, but you will be actively working towards registering as a dentist with the General Dental Council.
