  • Goals for any model of standards and guidance

We believe any model of guidance and standards should achieve the following three goals:

  1. The standards and guidance continue to reflect professional practice and what patients expect.
  2. The standards and guidance are provided in a way that is useful to dental professionals and meets their needs.
  3. The standards and guidance are set and provided in a way that enables professionals to use their professional judgement to deliver the right care for patients in every circumstance and conduct themselves in a way that ensures public confidence in dentistry.

We will, however, be testing these goals with stakeholders in our upcoming events to understand if these goals are the right ones. You can also provide your views about these goals through our dedicated survey.
