Welcome to the GID Website

Welcome to Gloucestershire Independent Dentists website. On this site you will be able to locate any member of GID and its affiliated groups with their practice details, location and opening hours. Each Practice and individual member is listed within the 'Find a GID Practitioner' section of our website.

The website of each individual dentist and practice is the responsibility of that practice and not GID and the information therein is controlled by the practice itself. This website therefore has to conform to the guidelines issued by the General Dental Council.

You will also be able to see the postgraduate programme that we run for our members and the affiliated groups. The contact details of the committees are available in the relevant section.

Being a member of the GID gives you access to one the best postgraduate programmes available for a small monthly fee. Access to some excellent deals for materials and equipment. A chance to meet fellow professionals in the area both in a professional setting and in one of the many social events that GID runs.

Membership of GID and its affiliated groups is open to dentists and relevant dental care professionals who either work or live in Gloucestershire and at the discretion of The Committee. Members of all GID groups are encouraged to attend other group's study days for a small charge that covers the day delegate rate, this is done simply via the booking system on the website.

NON GID dentists, hygienists, therapists, managers and nurses are welcome to attend the courses on an ad hoc basis. Once registered on the site you will be able to login and book future courses whenever you wish. The fee scale for attendance is attached to each course and the admin is done by the relevant group secretary. For all general inquiries contact Mark on
