Our primary purpose is to protect patient safety and maintain public confidence in dental services. To achieve this, we register qualified dental professionals, set standards for the dental team, investigate complaints about dental professionals' fitness to practise, and work to ensure the quality of dental education.

The GDC’s use of information is central to the quality of service we give to people and the protection we provide to the public. It shapes and supports our ability to influence stakeholders and public policy.

We are looking for individuals who possess expert knowledge and understanding of data protection legislation together with demonstrable, senior level experience, of its application in complex operational environments. You will bring relevant expertise in, and experience of, information risk management and the investigation and management of incidents and root cause analysis.
