What can the GDC do?
We take action when a dental professional's ability, behaviour or health means it is not suitable for them to continue working as a dental professional. If the situation is serious enough we can limit or remove the dental professional's right to work in the UK.
We look carefully at every allegation we receive. The action we can take may range from an advice letter to removing or restricting the dental professional's registration. However, we cannot award compensation: only the courts can do that.
