Covid-19 and Clinical Dentistry
As dental practices in England continue and develop the provision of dental care it is important for all registrants and their practice teams to ensure their practice is in line with the most up to date guidance from the regulators and experts listed here:
Office of the Chief Dental Officer England
General Dental Council
NHS England and NHS Improvement
Care Quality Commission
Public Health England
Faculty of General Dental Practice
All these organisations have websites where up to date information is freely available. This list is not exhaustive and there are other sites that you may find useful.
Health Education England working across Midlands and East also has the resources below to support you. HEE will make efforts to remove any resources that risk registrants accessing out of date guidance. :
As part of registration requirements with the General Dental Council (GDC), Dentists and Dental Care Professionals are required continually to develop themselves within their professional sphere and provide evidence of such development to their relevant professional bodies on annual basis to the GDC.
