Our purpose is public protection. That purpose is primarily achieved through the actions of dental professionals in delivering patient care to high clinical and ethical standards.
- Set and support high professional standards in dental education and practice.
- Maintain a register of dental professionals who meet our standards.
- Ensure nobody is added to that register if they do not meet our standards.
- Act if any regulated dental professional falls short of our standards.
