GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONER CODE

A unique code identifying a GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONER.

NHS Dental Services allocates GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONER CODES to GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONERS carrying out work for the NHS.

A doctor can be both a GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONER and a Dental CONSULTANT, and therefore hold a GENERAL DENTAL PRACTITIONER CODE and a CONSULTANT CODE simultaneously.
