The GDC has close to 500 Associates, who help us execute our statutory functions by working in various roles across the organisation. They include inspectors, panellists, advisors and committee members.
Quality Assurance inspectors
The General Dental Council’s inspections of dental education programmes are carried out by external quality assurance inspectors. Inspectors will usually undertake inspections in teams of four, and each team is selected from a wider pool of experts recruited by the GDC.
Our inspectors include dentists, dental care professionals and lay members from legal, education and healthcare backgrounds.
Our current group of inspectors were recruited in Autumn 2012. You can find out more about each of our inspectors below.
