OFT welcomes the General Dental Council’s measures April 9th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments OFT welcomes the General Dental Council’s measures The OFT welcomes the General Dental Council’s measures to make important dental services more accessible for patients. In its report, published in May 2012, the OFT found that while the majority of patients are satisfied with their dentists, the GDC’s measures were restrictive. Now, patients will be able to get direct access to dental care professionals, such as dental hygienists, without a referral from a dentist. The OFT is pleased that the GDC will remove these restrictions. By giving patients direct access to dental therapists and hygienists, the GDC’s move will help patients get access to the services they need to maintain their oral health.
