We offer an update service to enable you to keep up with the latest Guidance from the College and FGDP(UK). Register here for updates and alerts.

The College of General Dentistry seeks to establish and promote high standards in primary care dentistry.

We are building on the well-known publications of the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK), which cover a range of important areas of practice – including Standards in Dentistry.

Implications of COVID-19 for the safe management of general dental practice: a practical guide

We published our guidance to support the return to practise after the pandemic on 1 June 2020, and have most recently updated it on 2 October.

A synopsis (download below) has also been published, with support from Sensodyne, which highlights key recommendations at each step of the patient journey. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the guidance, which supports dental professionals to take a risk-based approach to providing safe care, whatever the national COVID-19 threat level
