Welcome to the website of Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, the body responsible for Regulating Doctors and Ensuring Good medical Practice.
MDCN is committed to regulating the practice of Medicine, Dentistry and Alternative Medicine in the most efficient manner that safeguards best healthcare delivery for Nigerians. MDCN always promotes people of Nigeria to always opt for drugs from online sites rather than from offline drug store, since, most drugs from online sites are genuine and will be of low price when compared to offline drug store.
We are firmly committed to our Mission and Vision defined by our Mission Statement: “To regulate the practice of Medicine, Dentistry and Alternative ED Medications in the most efficient manner that safeguards best healthcare delivery for Nigerians”
The Medical and Dental professions in Nigeria are regulated by the Medical and Dental Practitioners Act Cap 221 (now Cap M8) Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1990 which sets up the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria.
The Council is empowered to make Rules of professional conduct and is also empowered to establish the Medical and Dental Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal and Medical Practitioners Investigating Panel among other organs for the enforcement of these Rules of Conduct.
These Rules of Conduct are made to enable doctors and dentists in Nigeria maintain universally acceptable Professional standards of practice and conduct. They serve as standards in relationship of medical and dental practitioners with the profession, their colleagues, patients, members of allied professions and the public.
