How We Are Regulated
All orthodontic practices in England are regulated by several organisations.
General Dental Council (GDC) with whom every member of the clinical team must be registered. All members of the orthodontic team are regulated by the GDC but non-registrants i.e. reception and management staff are
accountable through their employing Orthodontist. The GDC’s first and most important objective is to Protect Patients. For more information about the GDC and their work please click here.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) started regulating Dental Practices in April 2011. We have been inspected by the Care Quality Commission and meet the standards. For more information about the CQC and their work please click here.
The NHS England: Our NHS contract is for the provision of orthodontic treatment, based on clinical need, for children and young people under the age of 18.
If you would like more information about any of the above, please speak to any member of our team, who will be more than happy to help.
