Introduction: Dental practices are legally and ethically required to provide their patients with high quality care delivered in a safe environment. Finding even the most basic information on compliance with Irish regulations and regulators governing the practice of dentistry is not straight forward.
What are the core elements of a compliant practice?
What level of documentation, organisational governance, and in-house communication is needed to meet the required minimum standards?
