GDC renewals for Dental Care Professionals

The registration renewals process for Dental Care Professionals (DCPs) is currently open and will close on 31 July 2022.

Members are encouraged to remind their members of staff to renew their registration and ensure they comply with the CPD requirements.

All registrants are required to declare a minimum of 10 hours of verifiable CPD over any two-year period. As an example, this means that any DCP who might have declared two hours in 2021, will be required to declare at least eight hours this year. If this requirement is not fulfilled, registrants risk being taken off the register.

DCPs who reach the end of the current CPD cycle this year will have to make a full declaration (75 hours for dental therapists, dental hygienists, orthodontic therapists or CDTs; 50 verifiable hours for dental nurses and dental technicians). Any individuals who do not have enough hours to fulfil the requirements can make up the missing hours before the end of July.

DCP registrants will also need to pay the annual registration fee and make their indemnity declaration.
