The FGDP(UK) in Scotland
FGDP(UK) Scotland brings together professionals from all areas of dentistry. We represent all grass roots dentists and members of the dental team. We joined the Faculty because we are committed to raising standards and working together to improve the profession.
Our committee members understand what it’s like to run a practice and the importance of learning new skills. Through study days and MJDF tuition courses we share knowledge and make it easier for the whole practice team to gain access to meaningful CPD.

The West of Scotland division was set up in 1993 and remains one of the most active FGDP divisions in the UK. Currently there are in excess of 120 members.
Our diploma study groups have been running throughout this time as the exam has changed from the DGDP, to the MFGDP and now to the revised MJDF. This is the first step on the career pathway for GDPs. There has been a surge of interest in this exam in recent years and our study group is full each year with a waiting list for the following year. Visit the west of Scotland MJDF tuition page to find out more.
Our hugely successful annual study day in Glasgow is now in its 25th year. It regularly attracts an audience of over 350 dentists and DCPs to hear internationally renowned speakers.
In 2013 we were joined by the inspirational Gordon Christensen, in 2014 the hugely popular Martin Kelleher and Terry Donovan and in 2015 the great combination of Phil Ower and Bill Robbins. You can find out more about study day 2016 by visiting our event page.
All in all, we are lucky to be part of an active and vibrant division. I would like to thank all our committee members for the time and effort they have spent helping us achieve this.
