Dental services in Gibraltar are provided by Registered Dental Practitioners who are either in salaried employment in the Gibraltar Health Authority or in private dental practice as self-employed.
The Gibraltar Medical Registration Board is the registering body for Dentists and Dental specialists.
The Board in general shadows the UK’s General Dental Council in matters of ethical policy and adopts its published guidance as its own framework of professional guidelines for registered dental practitioners registered with it.
The Board however retains the right to modify or rewrite its professional guidance to suit local circumstances. Where there is a variance, this will be made explicit and published in this website.
The Board has adopted the General Dental Council’s guidelines Standards for Dental Professionals (May 2005) as its own code for registered dental practitioners.
The General Dental Council’s current professional guidance may be obtained from its website:
