Dental Student & Fitness to Practise

The standards set by the General Dental Council (GDC) expected of registered dental professionals apply equally to dental students.  A finding of impaired fitness to practise could have lasting and significant implications for dental students.

We also act for, and represent, Dental students facing competency, conduct and other fitness to practise proceedings.
