  • Consent (UK) - March 2016

    A patient’s informed consent to investigations or treatment is a fundamental aspect of the proper provision of dental care. Without informed consent to treatment, a dentist is vulnerable to criticism on a number of counts, not least those of assault and negligence which in turn could lead respectively to criminal charges and civil claims.
