Specialist Dentistry

All the dentists that work at Harpenden Dental Centre are registered specialist dentists.

The General Dental Council holds a register for general dentists and another for dental specialists. Only those dentists on the specialist lists can call themselves a ‘specialist’. These dentists have met certain requirements and have been given the right to use the title ‘specialist’.

You can search for a specialist using the GDC Register search.
