The General Dental Council (GDC) has been praised in a new report for positive changes that have been made to the body in recent times.
According to Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence (CHRE), changes to processes at the GDC have been shown to be a success.
It was noted the GDC has become a more effective regulatory as a result of the shifts performed at the body, while the report stated: “The GDC has demonstrated that it meets most of the Standards of Good Regulation for fitness to practise.”
Chair of the GDC Kevin O’Brien explained he is “very pleased” with the findings of the report by the CHRE that improvements have been made at the organisation.
Chief executive of the GDC Evlynne Gilvarry stated acknowledgment of the progress that has been made at the body is to be welcomed.
The GDC is responsible for the regulation of dentists, dental nurses, dental technicians, clinical dental technicians, dental hygienists and dental therapists.
