New Performers

If you are a dentist wanting to provide dental care for the NHS in England, you need apply to join the Dental Performers List for England.

This includes foundation dentists, dental practitioners from the rest of the UK who are moving to England to practice and dentists from abroad. Inclusion on any other Performers List is not transferable and a new application is necessary.

Important message for New Dental Performers

From 1 July 2021 onwards, applicants who wish to join the performers list no longer have to provide evidence of entitlement to enter and work in the UK. 

You will still need to provide your ID documents i.e. passport during the application process. 

There are guides on this page to help you with the application process.

Please note, it is the responsibility of your employer to ensure you provide the correct evidence of the right to work and settled status, as part of their employment checks.
