What to do if GDC rejects my registration application?

If the GDC rejects your application for registration, you will receive a letter explaining the reasons for the decision and any steps you can take to appeal or re-apply.

If you believe that the GDC’s decision was incorrect or unfair, you may have the right to appeal the decision. The GDC has a process in place for appealing decisions on applications for registration, and you will be able to find information on how to do this in the letter you receive from the GDC.

If you decide to appeal the decision, you will need to provide evidence and arguments to support your case. You may want to seek legal advice or assistance from a professional representative, such as a solicitor if you decide to appeal.

If you do not wish to appeal the decision or if your appeal is unsuccessful, you may be able to reapply for registration at a later date. However, you will need to address the reasons for the rejection of your previous application and provide evidence that you have addressed any issues that led to the rejection. You may also need to meet any additional requirements that the GDC may have specified.

It is important to be aware that the GDC’s decisions on applications for registration are final and cannot be challenged through the courts. If your application is rejected and you are not able to successfully appeal or reapply, you will not be able to work as a dental professional in the UK.
