Standards for dental profession put new focus on patients

New standards for the dental profession came into force last week which put a much stronger focus on patients’ expectations and entitlements.

Issued by the General Dental Council (GDC), the UK’s dental regulator, the standards were developed following intensive consultation with patients and the public.

If a complaint is made about a dental professional their behaviour/conduct will be measured against the standards and guidance in this document.
