Standards in Dentistry is the fifth of the five books in the FGDP(UK)'s series of standards for dental professionals.
This publication brings together all previous standards and guidelines in oral healthcare, including material published by the FGDP(UK), BDA, GDC, ISO, and the Department of Health, among others. The comprehensive manual includes tables of clinical outcomes, based on the FGDP(UK)'s previous publication Self-Assessment Manual and Standards (SAMS), covering 17 treatment areas in both primary and secondary care dentistry.
The innovative format of Standards in Dentistry combines a printed manual with an online publication, Guidelines for Structure and Process in Dental Practice, which sets out non-clinical guidelines, allowing for frequent updates as the legislation changes. The online section provides guidance on topics including:
- Environmental and hazard control
- Infection control
- Health and safety
- Patient records
- Staff and staff training
- Medical emergencies
- Patient information
- Communication and record-keeping
- Medico-legal responsibilities and indemnity
- Practice management
- Conscious sedation.
This ambitious package is an indispensable compendium for the conscientious oral healthcare professional in helping to guide personal or practice-based quality assessment.
