Britain promises shift from reaction to prevention in regulating dentists

The General Dental Council, regulator of all dental professionals in the UK, has announced plans to move the entire focus of its organization from enforcement action and responding to harm, to prevention, support and education. The chair of the GDC, Bill Moyes described the current system as "outdated, cumbersome and inefficient," prompting the need for overhaul. The plans are due to be published on January 26, but as per a GDC claim, work has already begun.
