General Dental Council seeks clinical advisors and experts
We are looking to expand our list of clinical advisors and experts who can bring their knowledge, skills and expertise to our fitness to practise process.
As part of its duty to protect patients and maintain the standard of dental practice and conduct, we investigate fitness to practise concerns raised by patients, registrants, organisations or members of the public about the conduct, performance or health of registrants.
Clinical advisors and experts assist us with these investigations by providing independent clinical advice and opinion. They provide their opinion in written reports and may also be asked to attend hearings when a registrant is referred to one of our Practice Committees.
Our caseload has increased dramatically over the past four years and as a result, our need for clinical advisors and experts has also increased.
Applicants will need to have at least five years' experience in practice and applications from those with either specialist training or an interest in orthodontics and/or implants would be particularly welcome.
You can find out more about the role by listening to the following podcast.
