The Faculty of General Dental Practice UK (FGDP) is reminding its Full Members and Fellows throughout the UK to cast their vote(s) in the Faculty Board elections by 5pm on Friday 4 June 2021.



Two elections are taking place, one for a national seat and the other for the Trent and East Anglia regional seat, with the elected individuals joining the National Faculty Board in late June before becoming members of the Council of the new College of General Dentistry on 1 July 2021.  

All Full Members and Fellows who live or practice in the UK are eligible to vote in the election for the national seat, and those registered to the Trent and East Anglia membership divisions can also vote for the regional seat. Where candidates are standing for both the regional and national seat, votes will be counted for the regional seat first, with the successful candidate then removed from the running for the national seat election. 

All eligible members will have received emails from Civica Election Services (CES) containing their unique voting link and the personal security codes they need to cast their vote(s).

No ballot was required for the Mersey and North West, South West and West Midlands regional seats, and so candidates for those regions have been duly elected and the details will be formally announced in due course.  

If you have any queries regarding the election process, please contact Harriet.Gordon-Lee@civica.co.uk.
