The Faculty of General Dental Practice has announced the appointment of 50 dentists to the new FGDP(UK) Academy.

The Academy has been established to recognise significant and ongoing contributions to the academic work of the Faculty at a national level in support of its core purposes.

Appointments are made as Member or Senior Member of the FGDP(UK) Academy in relation to the responsibility and commitment of specified roles, such as in the development of FGDP’s guidance and standards, and the delivery and assessment of its exams and educational programmes.

Membership is for a three-year term, renewable based on an individual’s continuing contribution, and it is intended that the Academy will move across to the College of General Dentistry upon the transfer of FGDP(UK) itself.

A list of the Members of the Academy appointed to date is here.

Ian Mills, Dean of the Faculty, said:

“I am delighted that the Board has seen fit to establish an Academy to recognise the outstanding work of so many of our colleagues in delivering postgraduate dental education and promoting the highest standards of care. There are many Members, Fellows and others who serve the profession and its patients through the Faculty, and I look forward to recognising these contributions with further appointments in the coming months.”
