|About the CDTA|
|The Clinical Dental Technicians Association provides political and educational representation for its members who are registered with the General Dental Council.
The Association has worked, and continues to work, with all stakeholders, including Government and the General Dental Council.
The Dentists Act 1984 was amended to introduce new professions within dentistry known as Dental Care Professionals. These Dental Care Professionals include Clinical Dental Technicians, Dental Technicians, Dental Nurses, Dental Hygienists, Dental Therapists and Orthodontic Therapists. Dental Technicians and Dental Nurses have a transitional period, until July 2008, to register.
All other Dental Care Professionals do not benefit from this transitional period and were required to register from January 2007.
The Clinical Dental Technicians Association is committed to the concept of team dentistry and ensures that its members work to the highest professional standards. All Dental Care Professionals are required to work within strict ethical guidelines as laid down by the General Dental Council.
Please review the rest of this website to gain information on our codes of conduct and patient charter.
Should you have a complaint regarding any of the services provided by a Clinical Dental Technician, you should first, attempt to deal with this with the practice using their internal complaints procedure. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome and the practitioner is an Association member, you should contact us, and we will attempt to arbitrate.
