Statement of Intent

Hands on top of hands in a circleThis ‘Practice Support Manual’ (PSM) has resulted from a careful consideration of current legislation, professional regulations, current guidelines, the available evidence and the opinion of experienced practitioners.

The advice provided includes mandatory requirements for practice inspections and advice considered to be best practice by experienced practitioners within the Guidance Development Group.

Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in the PSM and there is a commitment to keep it up to date, legislation and professional regulations are subject to change and therefore SDCEP cannot guarantee its correctness and completeness at all times.

As guidance, the PSM does not override the individual responsibility of the health professional to make decisions appropriate to the individual dental practice and individual patients.
