Notice of new recertification programme
On 10 May 2021, the Dental Council notified all oral health practitioners that it has set a new recertification programme.
It is important that you read the notice and begin to familiarise yourself with the requirements of the new programme.
The new programme starts:
- from 1 October 2021 for dentists and dental specialists
- from 1 April 2022 for oral health therapists, dental hygienists, dental therapists, orthodontic auxiliaries, dental technicians and clinical dental technicians.
To help practitioners prepare and understand the requirements of the new programme we have updated the recertification page on our website. Guidance materials, including a handbook for practitioners, quick guide brochure, step by step fact sheet, stop, start guide and templates are available.
