BSDHT issues statement on GDC’s introduction of ARF instalment plan


  Posted by: Dental Design      24th March 2021

The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) welcomes the decision taken by the General Dental Council, introducing an option to pay the Annual Retention Fee (ARF) in instalments.

The pandemic has been a difficult time financially for many dental professionals, so this new option to split the payment into four, more manageable, quarterly direct debits of £28.50 for dental hygienists and dental therapists is likely to make a considerable difference for a number of individuals.

The Society is glad that the regulator has listened to the concerns of the BSDHT and its members, and has made this more flexible option available. Hopefully this measure will make a difference for many dental hygienists and dental therapists and in the future.
