Description:
The Dental Council’s primary role is to protect the public. It does this in many ways, including issuing codes and guidelines to the profession and the public. The new Code of Practice relating to: Infection Prevention and Control (April 2015) supersedes the 2005 Code. The new Code has evolved from the 2005 Code, recognising the changes that have occurred in scientific knowledge, and international and national regulation and laws. Inspection of the references will give an insight into the changes that have occurred since 2005. The Dental Council sought to develop a code that was appropriate to the protection of the public and all those employed in dental practices. The development of an appropriate code provides everyone with recognisable standards, while promoting transparency and enhancing public confidence in the dental profession. It is a win-win situation for the public and profession alike.
