Focus on Standards

​To support the Standards for the Dental Team, we have developed an interactive site with case studies, scenarios and FAQs.​

We have developed case studies and scenarios that will help you test your knowledge on Standards for the Dental Team. If you have any comments, queries or suggestions on content for these pages, please contact us​​.

Standards for the Dental Team (242.1 KB, PDF) sets out the standards of conduct, performance and ethics that govern you as a dental professional. The documents on this page are all effective from 30 September 2013.

​We cannot issue additional hard copies of Standards for the Dental Team. Please find printer-friendly versions on this web page, or visit Focus on Standards.

One of the requirements in Standards for the Dental Team (6.6.11) requires those who manage a team to display the following information in an area where it can be seen easily by patients:​

  • the fact that they are regulated by the GDC; and

  • the nine principles contained within Standards for the Dental Team.

You are able to create your own poster displaying this information, or you can download one of the posters on this page.​​
