  • Referral to the General Dental Council - November 2016

    This leaflet is specifically written for Dental Protection members who have been notified that the GDC is investigating an issue in relation to their fitness to practise. Any registrant can be investigated  by the GDC, so although the text refers to a dentist, exactly the same advice applies to dental care professionals.
