The Medical and Dental Council is the Statutory Governmental Agency that regulates standards of training and practice of medicine and dentistry in Ghana. It was established under the Medical and Dental Decree, 1972 (NRCD 91), as amended by the Medical and Dental (Amendment) Decree, 1979 (NRCD 91), and Medical and Dental (Amendment) Decree, 1979 (AFRCD 8).

Subject to the provisions of the NRCD 91, the Medical and Dental Board (Act 36) then in existence immediately before the commencement of the Decree was deemed to be the Medical and Dental Council under the Decree.
