Welcome to the Dental Professionals Hearings Service. We hold independent hearings for cases brought to us by the General Dental Council (GDC) about dental professionals’ fitness to practise and registration.

On this website you can find listings of upcoming hearings, a bank of past decisions, guidance and resources, and information for all who are required or wishing to attend a hearing. You can also find information about our independent Committees made up of dental professionals and lay people who adjudicate on the cases brought to us.
