To confirm whether a dental professional is registered with us and able to practise in the UK, you can search our Registers below. These are updated daily.
We do not hold information on whether a person works in the NHS or private practice. If you would like to find a dentist in your area you can visit
BDA Find a dentist.
You can search a specific Register by entering either a name, town, postcode or any combination of these and clicking 'go'.
Alternatively you can search all Registers for an individual by entering their GDC registration number.

- Clinical dental technician
- Dental hygienist

Furthermore, you can search for Dentists registered as Temporary Registrants and Dentists and DCPs registered as Visiting Practitioners.
