Council meetings

The Council is made up of 12 members - six appointed registrants and six appointed lay members.

Next meeting - 3 October 2019

Council meeting

Council Meetings generally take place in public at the GDC offices and occasionally other locations. 

​The agenda and papers are made available on our website ahead of the meeting.

Questions relating to items on the Council's agenda

If you have any questions that relate to matters listed on the Council's agenda for the next meeting then please get in touch using this form​​.

If your question is received at least three working days prior to the meeting date then a verbal response will be given at the meeting, in most cases. If your question is received outside this time or where the matter is complex and a response cannot be formulated before the meeting then a written response will be provided within seven to 15 working days after the meeting. In both instances the question and response will be appended to the relevant meeting minutes. Questions and their responses will also be published on this page.

Like all regulators and other public bodies, a limited number of sensitive items may need to be considered confidentially. These are kept to a minimum and are items which, if disclosed, could impact on the GDC’s ability to regulate the dental team and protect patients. Members of the press and public will be asked to leave the meeting when the Council considers these items.
