GDC Fitness to Practise

We are leading medical and healthcare defence barristers acting for a range of dental practitioners in all matters relating to their fitness to practise before the General Dental Council (GDC). 

We represent and advise a range of dental practitioners before the General Dental Council including:

  • Dentists
  • Dental therapists and dental hygienists
  • Dental nurses
  • Dental technicians
  • Clinical dental technicians
  • Orthodontic therapists
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgeons

Our experience include acting for dentists and other dental practitioners from both the NHS and private sector who work in across the UK (England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland).

Any dentist or dental practitioner facing proceedings before any General Dental Council (GDC) committee, must seek specialist legal advice at the earliest opportunity for the best outcome. 

With our experience in the criminal courts and other adversarial tribunals, we have gained special expertise and understanding at contested hearings.  Our strategic approach often leads to a early case conclusions and at times without the need for full fitness to practise committee hearings.

We are rated excellent by our clients for our regulatory defence service and customer service.

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.
