Dental care professionals (DCPs) and dentists are being encouraged to sign up for an EGDC account.
EGDC is the General Dental Council’s (GDC’s) website that allows dental professionals to manage their registration online, quickly and easily.
The dedicated, secure site (www.egdc-uk.org) enables registrants to amend their contact details, update continuous professional development (CPD) hours, view and print a replacement certificate of registration, pay the annual retention fee (ARF) and set up a direct debit.
With an EGDC account, DCPs can easily log their CPD hours at any time throughout the year, and submit end of cycle CPD declarations directly through their account.
The GDC has made improvements to the site over the past year, with more coming online during 2015.
The site is optimised to be mobile and tablet-friendly, making it easier to access on the move.
Dental professionals who haven’t used their account for a while and have forgotten their log in details can reset their account by visiting www.egdc-uk.org, clicking on the ‘Forgotten your email or password?’ link and providing the necessary security information.
An ID verification code is required when setting up or resetting an EGDC account, which is available in emails and letters sent out to registrants in the past.
Dental professionals should have this ready when setting up an EGDC account.
