GDPUK: About Us

This site became a new home in 2008 for GDPUK. All shades of opinion, information and advice within UK dentistry are represented within this vibrant and active group.


GDPUK.com is for dentists and dental professionals to discuss all aspects of their profession, their practice and their business, centred on the UK. Subjects dissected have been diverse, from tips on simple techniques to guidance on buying major equipment, to discussions on the various practice management software packages, and of ongoing developments in British dental politics.


Moderated in Manchester, England by Dr Tony Jacobs BDS, the Group was started in Summer 1997, and continues to grow rapidly. Tony continues to work in his family general dental practice in Manchester.


GDPUK.com also publishes UK dental news, and has had many exclusive stories, as well as being able to publish the latest news relevant to dentistry before other dental news providers. In addition, in terms of reader feedback and involvement, when some publications get almost no letters to the editor, GDPUK has about 320 different members writing to the group each month, and they write an average of 2300 messages each month.


In addition GDPUK blogs, both editorial and product updates are well read throughout the dental profession and industry.


A unique feature is the @DentistGoneBadd visual blog.


The group now has nearly 10,000 members, and attracts interest and sponsorship from major companies involved in the dental trade.


Readership is around 12,000 dentist hours per month [50,000 visits for an average of 13 minutes] and in 2016 this must exceed readership figures and hours spent of many paper based UK dental publications.


Advertisers can look forward to their banners being displayed thousands of times in a verified manner, using professional banner server software, to a targeted group of UK dental professionals.


The site remains free to join for all members of the dental profession. Register here.


Revenue is generated on the site by companies in the Dental trade, advertising on the site. More information about what GDPUK can offer our advertisers, can be found in our latest media pack.

Thanks for the work you and your team do in order to provide GDPUK as a invaluable resource for the dental profession.

GDPUK is an invaluable resource for any dentist from newly qualified to retirement. The advice, both clinical and non-clinical, is second to none and it a great place to share ideas.
