Membership reflects your commitment to professional standards in dentistry

Now open to:
– members of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK)
– all Dental Care Professionals
as we prepare for the transfer of the Faculty into the College.
Our initial “privilege membership” scheme is open for a small administrative fee; we will notify privilege members when full fees become due on 1 July 2021.

Our fully-fledged membership scheme is intended for launch in July 2021 and ties to our Career Pathways. Meanwhile, we have some exciting offers for those who would like to take part at this vital stage in the development of the College.

Our Foundation Membership scheme is now closed; Foundation Members can take advantage of the scheme for FGDP(UK) members for no additional fee.

For retired practitioners, we will provide special membership rates that enable you to keep connected with, and contribute to your professional community, and we have other rates for special circumstances.
