    Each committee has a number of sub-committees which examine in detail special topics and report back to the parent committee.

    In the Education and Training area, there are separate sub-committees dealing with registration, undergraduate and post-graduate dental training, specialist registration and examinations for non-EU dentists. In relation to auxiliary dental workers, there are separate sub-committees on dental nurses, dental technicians, clinical dental technicians and dental hygienists. The Fitness to Practise committee has an ethics sub-committee.

    The Chairpersons of the statutory committees are as follows:
