About UK, Dentist Registers, 1879-1942

These Registers were compiled by the General Medical Council and records all dentists entitled to practice.

The registers record individuals practicing under the License in Dental Surgery (from 1860) attained from the Royal College of Surgeons. It records the name, dental practice address, date of registration and qualification of every practitioner. Be aware that until The Dentists' Act of 1921, which made registration mandatory, many dentists practiced unregistered and therefore will not be included.
