Dentistry industry regulation and disciplinary proceedings

All dentists in the UK are regulated by the General Dental Council, a body tasked with setting standards and taking action against medical professionals who breach laws and regulation. All UK dentists must register with the GDC.

If the GDC makes allegations or investigates a practice or a specific dentist the consequences can be severe – dentists can be struck off, or face hearings that seriously damage their professional reputation and ability to work.

If you are facing investigation by the GDC contact our specialist solicitors for advice on how best to proceed. JMW Solicitors is a leading body in this area and we have varied experience in defending dental professionals against charges of all kinds. To find out more contact us today on 0800 652 5559.
