English Language Requirements
English language requirements are for all applicants seeking registration with the General Dental Council. Generally, the evidence required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language is the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam. They may be alternative methods to demonstrate proficiency in the English language in some categories of applicants. You can see full details here.
There may be other methods of demonstrating proficiency in the English language other than IELTS that may be applicable in certain cases. Please see the GDC’s Evidence of English language competence: guidance for applicants document.
Dentists from EEA countries with a recognised qualification from a dental school in the EEA are entitled to registration until any changes are made by the GDC.
