College of General Dentistry recruits for an Advisory Strategy Group to guide its development

The College of General Dentistry (CGDent) is the first independent college for primary care dentistry in the UK. Serving the public interest in oral health, and engaging the whole dental team, it will build on the achievements of the FGDP(UK) in setting standards for general dental care and delivering outstanding postgraduate dental education.

 

The College is now recruiting an Advisory Strategy Group, seeking contributions from across the dental team. This is an important opportunity for people across the Registrant community to make an active contribution, guiding the future direction of the College.

 

The Group will play a crucial role in advising the Board of Trustees as they make plans to launch the College. The Group’s 15 members, who will have first-hand experience working across the dental team, will provide much-needed insight into the ideas, perspectives and priorities of people working in dentistry.

 

Chair of Trustees, Prof Nairn Wilson, said: “This is an exciting moment for the College, a step closer to its formal launch, and a mark of our commitment to embrace the interests and contributions of the whole dental team. We believe that a lack of diversity in leadership and influence in dentistry is a barrier to effectiveness - and we want our Advisory Strategy Group to draw upon strengths across the many communities that have such an important role to play for the future.”

 

Applications close on August 21st, with interviews planned in early September. Details can be found athttps://wp.me/P8ZZcL-tx
