Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology (Dip. CDT RCSEd)

The examination for the Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology is designed to test the ability of candidates to treat patients as delegated by a registered dentist.  The range of skills to be tested in the examination include only those which are specified in the Learning Outcomes for Clinical Dental Technology as stated in "Preparing for Practice" published by the General Dental Council.

Examiners must be in good standing with the General Dental Council and should have been registered with the GDC for a period of not less than four years.  Orthodontic Therapists must be registered with the General Dental Council and should hold a Diploma in Orthodontic Therapy of the RCS Edinburgh or equivalent. For Dentists, the candidate needs to be on the Specialist List for Orthodontics of the General Dental Council and hold an MOrth or equivalent with the RCS Edinburgh.
