At the Dental Academy we have Specialist Dentists in Orthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics, Restorative Dentistry and Oral Surgery.
Any registered dentist can work in a particular field of dentistry (such as orthodontics or oral surgery), but only those on the General Dental Council specialist lists can call themselves a ‘specialist’. These dentists have met certain requirements and been given the right by the GDC to use the title ‘specialist’.
Dentists on these lists have been granted entry because they have met certain minimum standards of training. The routes for entry are determined by European and GDC regulations.
