Abstract

The General Dental Council has been through a very difficult period, and there is an appetite within government and the profession for a review of healthcare regulation, with an emphasis on right-touch regulation. The background to those difficulties is reviewed and the nature and impact of changes to the Dentist Act, which are being introduced during 2016, is discussed. The role of the Professional Standards Authority in regulating the healthcare professional is also explained.
