Information for patients

This area of the website contains information about going abroad for dental treatment, dental charges, and the standard of care you should expect from your dental professional.


Our leaflet, Smile, explains the role of the GDC, ​what to expect at your visit, and what to do if you're unhappy with your experience.

Smile is available in the following languages and formats:

  • ​English ​
  • Welsh
  • Bengali​
  • Mandarin
  • Polish​
  • Punjabi
  • Urdu​
You can order printed copies in English and EasyRead. The other versions are PDF only.

The accessible EasyRead version features larger font, pictures to support and help explain the text, and shorter sentences and language that sounds natural when spoken. The PDF is compatible with screen readers with tagged images.
