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?
Once you are aware of the basics what are the steps you should follow to develop and implement a pathway to a compliant dental practice?

This course addresses these issues and provides you with the building blocks necessary to develop practice-specific systems to align your practice with the basic standards of compliance in dentistry.

A record of attendance at this core CPD subject should be maintained for at least 5 years.
