We’re interested in what you think of the Dental Board of Australia’s (the Board) proposed changes to Scope of practice registration standard and Guidelines for scope of practice.
The proposed revised registration standard and guidelines continues to set out the Board’s requirements for scope of practice that aligns with the Board’s broad regulatory framework and the needs of all dental practitioners.
The proposed changes include to:
To support the changes proposed as part of this review and aid the continuous learning of practitioners through reflective practice, the Board has developed a new reflective tool to help practitioners to assess their individual scope of practice. The Board is seeking dental practitioners’ views on the content and structure of the new tool, as to whether it is helpful, clear and relevant.
Public consultation is an important part of the Board’s engagement with the profession. The feedback you provide is greatly valued and informs the Board’s development of regulatory documents.
The Board’s scope of practice public consultation paper is published on the Board’s website - see the Current Consultations section of www.dentalboard.gov.au.
