Performance reports to Council

Council meetings receive a quarterly report detailing the GDC's performance. This includes information about:

  • Registers: e.g. how many dental professionals have joined or left the registers, whether new registrants qualified overseas or in the UK
  • Quality assurance: e.g. how many education inspections we have carried out
  • Fitness to practise and hearings: e.g. volume of cases/hearings
  • Dental Complaints Service: e.g. numbers of complaints received and resolved.

Performance reports can be downloaded from Council meeting papers for 2013,  2012 and 2011 or you can search the website for “performance reports” to find the reports for the periods which interest you.

We run these reports on the first Monday of every month. They show:

  • Total number of registrants
  • Types of registrants - including breakdown by England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland by the registered address
  • Numbers of dentists on specialist lists.
