The annual retention fees (ARF) of almost 53,000 dental care professionals (DCP) have now been processed.
Over 93% of those who were on the register at the time of renewal have paid this year’s ARF. Just over 4,000 DCPs have been removed from the register for not paying the fee, and 651 others specifically asked to be removed for reasons including taking a career break or retiring.
Registrants who have not paid their ARF were sent letters on 18 August informing them of their removal from the register. PCTs, health boards, deaneries and indemnity providers have also been informed.
Those with concerns about whether or not their payment has gone through can contact 0800 1777 965.
