A GENERAL DENTAL COUNCIL REGISTRATION NUMBER is allocated to a GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONER by the General Dental Council.
All GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONERS and Dental Care Professionals who practise in the United Kingdom must be registered with the General Dental Council.
This includes, all Dentists, Dental Nurses, Dental Technicians, Dental Hygienists, Dental Therapists, Clinical Dental Technicians and Orthodontic Therapists
The General Dental Council Dentists Register lists all Dentists registered with the General Dental Council.
Note: The General Dental Council also maintains the General Dental Council Dental Care Professionals Register and the General Dental Council Specialist Lists in Distinctive Branches of Dentistry.
For further information on Dentist registration, see the General Dental Council website at: Search the registers.
For Commissioning Data Set version 6-2, for GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONERS working as a dental CONSULTANT who do not have a GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL REFERENCE NUMBER, the GENERAL DENTAL COUNCIL REGISTRATION NUMBER should be used to derive the CONSULTANT CODE, prefixed with "CD".
Note: GENERAL DENTAL COUNCIL REGISTRATION NUMBERS vary in length. Filling zeros are used between the prefix and GENERAL DENTAL COUNCIL REGISTRATION NUMBER, where required, to maintain total length of eight characters.
For further information, see the Organisation Data Service pages of the NHS England website at: English Dental Consultants.
