Join the faculty

The Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) is the academic home for general dental practitioners (GDPs) and dental care professionals (DCPs) in the UK.

Based at The Royal College of Surgeons of England, it aims to promote excellence in the standards of patient care in general dental practice by encouraging involvement in postgraduate training and assessment, education and research, both through its main office in central London and through its network of 21 divisions across the UK.

The FGDP(UK) supports lifelong learning and the career development of both GDPs and DCPs, and recognises the value of an integrated dental team in modern dentistry. Through the strength of its membership, the FGDP(UK) is able to influence the national standard setting agenda for primary dental care.
