We are greatly indebted to the following for their support in the establishment of the College of General Dentistry. You too can play a significant part in the historic founding of the College.
The new College could not come to fruition without the vision of those whose contributions led to the establishment of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) and the original College of General Dental Practitioners (UK) in 1990/91, and successive Deans of the Faculty who have kept that vision alive.
