“75% of NHS dental practices now struggling to fill vacancies”

British Dental Association March 2019

“In recent years, there have been several issues affecting NHS dental practices in England. These include problems recruiting NHS dentists…”

House of Lords Debate, UK Parliament, July 2019

All dentists must be registered with the GDC and licensed to work in the UK.

European Region

Dentists from the European economic region, with a primary qualification specified in the relevant EC Directive are able to register with the General Dental Council and practise in the UK on the basis of that qualification.

Non-European Region

Dentists from outside the European economic region, whose qualifications are not recognised for full registration with the GDC need to take the overseas registration examination (ORE).

The ORE tests the clinical skills and knowledge of dentists from outside the European economic region whose qualifications are not recognised for full registration with the GDC. The examination is based on the UK dental curriculum and uses modern assessment methods to ensure a robust and consistent examination. Dentists who pass this examination become eligible to apply for full registration to practise in the UK.
