    It is important to note that the registration process can take up to 3 months, from the time all documentation is received. We always endeavour to expedite the process, however, delays can occur due to incomplete applications or if additional information is required after the review stage of the registration process has taken place. The Dental Council would advise that you do not book patients in before you are fully registered.
