More than 2,600 dental care professionals have created accounts on the General Dental Council’s site, eGDC, since its relaunch in April this year.
This brings the total number of dental professionals who are using the site, first launched last November, to more than 5,200.
The eGDC site is designed to make registration requirements easy to meet, allowing users to update contact details, pay their annual retention fee and, in the future, submit continuing professional development returns.
Registering on the site can now be done instantly, meaning there’s no wait for a password letter, providing dental care professionals with an ID verification code.
Anne Gerulat, Processing Manager at the GDC, said: ‘We’re hoping dental care professionals in particular take advantage of eGDC this summer. They’re fast approaching the 31 July deadline to pay their annual retention fee and eGDC has plenty of extra information about how they can do that.
‘Some dental care professionals will also be asked to complete their continuing professional development returns this August and will be able to submit this on eGDC.’
