GID Dentists

Welcome to the dentist's section of the GID website.

Membership of GID is restricted to Dental Surgeons who live or work in Gloucestershire and at the discretion of The Committee. Joining costs £75 as an initial payment and then a monthly subscription of £48 collected by DPAS, who do not charge us for this facility. Membership allows access to arguably the best postgraduate programme in the UK, at no further cost, and discounted rates for practice team members. There are also business deals available, particularly an added discount with the Dental Directory who continue to sponsor us most generously. GID also organises a variety of social and charitable events that are publicised well in advance.

Newly qualified dental surgeons can now join GID for a concessionary that applies until the sixth year post qualification. There is no joining fee and the monthly subscription is £30 which entitles the member to attend all our study days as well as the social events. Membership will enable you to meet many of the local dental health professionals and local dental suppliers as well as attending some of the best postgraduate study days in the country. Please contact our Newly Qualified Secretary on or 07415069768. 

Dental Directory have been supporting GID for almost 25 years and over that time we have worked together to ensure you are getting the very best in products and services.

Dental Directory offers you a discounted core product list of 100 items and the additional of your own personal items called the bonus 5. The website now has live stock updates and we continue to make it easier to not only order through Dental Directory but also see where you are saving. More recently we have begun to really increase our specialist ranges for Ortho, Surgical and Digital and we continue to work with all manufacturers. We also offer exclusives such as Periochip, Hygitech and Geistlich. Dental Directory will provide a yearly rebate to each practice to say thank you for spending with us.

Through other companies within our group you will also benefit from a wide range of services including 17.5% off all handpiece repairs through Mitec, exclusive member rates for DBG training and compliance services and other discounts are available with Dolby Medical on Decontamination equipment, PDS on laboratory cases, MedFx for facial aesthetics and Torque for all your orthodontic products.

Dental Directory will continue to have a presence at every meeting and support all the GID events utilising all our departments and businesses to offer you more than just consumables.  Alongside myself your Business Consultant Ali Hunt and surgical specialist Gemma Osment, Dental Directory will continue to ensure that this relationship becomes even more successful and mutually beneficial.

Dental Directory is the largest British Dental retailer and we are very proud of our relationship with the largest Independent Practitioner Group in the UK. Long may it continue and here’s to another exciting programme of events in 2018-19.
