GDC REGISTRATION DUE!
The General Dental Council’s deadline for dental nurses to complete their Annual Registration Renewal is Sunday 31 July. The registration process has changed and all dental nurses are now also required to declare that they have indemnity cover when they register. (Indemnity cover is part of the BADN Full Membership with Cover – for details, click here).
Updating registration can be done through the EGDC portal or calling 0800 197 4610. Dental nurses who have already registered, but have not declared indemnity, or are unsure whether they have declared it, can still do so by using the same channels. The Registration team at the GDC will be available to dental nurses to take enquiries between 8am-6pm from Monday to Friday. They will also be available to answer enquiries over the weekend starting 30 July. (Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 10am-4pm).
Completion of the annual renewal allows continuation of practice as a dental nurse (ie you cant work as a dental nurse if you are not currently registered!).
