Dentistry in the UK
The UK has some of the world's longest established medical and dental organizations. It has played a central role in shaping the ethical and scientific face of modern dental practice.
Dentists are monitored by the Dental Practice Board. The board carrys out checks on the standard of dentistry through patient questionaires and clinic visits. Record keeping and the correct charging of fees are also monitored. Dentists opperating within entirely private practices (about 5% of dentists) are not subject to these monitoring processes. Dental practices offering general anaesthesia or using laser treatments are monitored by the HealthCare Commission, which produces extremely detailed reports on all aspects of the dental clinic's operations.
While NHS dental treatment is great for the continuing health of your teeth, it does not concentrate on the cosmetic aspects of dental care. If you want your teeth to look good as well as being healthy you may need specialist treatments which are unavailable on the NHS. The UK has nine recognised specialties and each specialty will have additional specialization in specific procedures such as implantology (implant's for the replacement of missing teeth). A large number of continuing training options are available in the UK providing professional development and postgraduate dental courses at the highest levels.
