Primary care dentistry lacks structured career opportunities, for all members of the dental team. We are here to put that right, with a Professional Framework and Career Pathways for all.

We are delighted to be working with the IAS Academy, who will deliver a programme toward the new College of General Dentistry Diploma in Primary Care Orthodontics (DipPCOrtho (CGDent)).

More exciting qualifications are being developed that will be opening for candidates over the next few months, including:

  • PG Certificate and Diploma in Dental Practice
  • PG Certificate and Diploma in Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetics

The Career Pathway

The College of General Dentistry is developing career pathways for primary care dentistry, in a phased programme of development that will embrace different roles in the dental team. It is underpinned by our Professional Framework, to provide clear guidance sought by practitioners at each stage in their professional development.

The Professional Framework is intended to describe the capabilities of a professional in dentistry, at each stage of a career. It provides a structure for professional development and clearly establishes your standing in the eyes of patients and peers.

Keep in touch, by registering as a Supporter of the College, and you will be the first to hear as our plans develop.
