Overseas-trained dentists planning to work in the UK must first register with the regulatory authority (the General Dental Council) and ensure that they have the right to work in the UK. You will either need to obtain an appropriate work permit, or be able to demonstarte your eligibility through acquired rights or derived rights under EU law.
"The General Dental Council (GDC) only recognises certain overseas dental qualifications as eligible for registration. You must confirm your registration status and the documentation required for registration with the GDC before you travel to the UK."
"The GDC requires all registered dentists and dental care professionals to hold adequate and appropriate indemnity against negligence claims. Failure to do so may result in Professional Misconduct."
DPL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Medical Protection Society (MPS). It is a mutual (not for profit) organisation which indemnifies the majority of dentists, hygienists and therapists registered in the UK. This UK-based organisation operates in 70 countries worldwide and dentists who are already DPL/MPS members in their own country can transfer their membership to and from the UK.
