Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear General Dental Council,

I have looked through the Dentists Act and have reviewed your guidance and policies but was unable to find the answer to these questions:

1. Is a U.K. registered dental surgeon permitted to call themselves a clinician as far as the GDC is concerned?

2. When is U.K. registered dental surgeon not a clinician as far as the GDC is concerned?

3. Can the GDC provide its regulatory position on how many times the words dentist, dental or dentistry must appear on the LinkedIn profile of a UK dental registrant?

4. Are dental registrants responsible for their non-registrant dental team members?

Yours faithfully,

Sam

Freedom of Information Requests, General Dental Council

Dear Sam

 

Thank you for your request for information asking:

 

1. Is a U.K. registered dental surgeon permitted to call themselves a
clinician as far as the GDC is concerned?

 

2. When is U.K. registered dental surgeon not a clinician as far as the
GDC is concerned?

 

3. Can the GDC provide its regulatory position on how many times the words
dentist, dental or dentistry must appear on the LinkedIn profile of a UK
dental registrant?

 

4. Are dental registrants responsible for their non-registrant dental team
members?

 

Your request was received on 7 March 2021. We are dealing with it under
the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the FOI Act’).

 

The GDC will process your request promptly, however, please note the FOI
Act allows public authorities (the GDC) up to 20 working days to provide a
response – the statutory deadline is therefore 7 April 2021.

 

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Regards
