FGDP(UK) divisions


As a member of the FGDP(UK) you are affiliated to one of the 21 regional groups (known as Divisions). Our Divisions are there to ensure that you have access to local support and advice as you continue to develop professionally.

Divisions are led by local Faculty members. Activities vary across the country, from Division to Division depending on local needs, but most Divisions run events with guest speakers. Some of the larger Divisions run annual conferences drawing hundreds of attendees. For information about events taking place, please see the events page.

Whether your interests lie in organising events, mentoring other dentists, or engaging with local commissioning bodies, each Division provides many and varied opportunities.
