Ask DPL - Does direct access affect the use of local anaesthesia by hygienists and therapists?

Ask DPL - Direct Access - I would feel much more comfortable carrying on just as before. Can I ask the dentist(s) that I work for, to continue examining patients before they see me, and prescribing the treatment that they wish me to carry out?

Ask DPL - If a DCP is not working to a dentist's prescription, what happens about consent?

Ask DPL - I work part-time in two practices as a dental hygienist and therapist. I have always assumed that the dentist who employs me in the practice where I work most of the time is ultimately liable for the work I carry out if one or both of us gets sued...

Ask DPL - Working as an associate do I need to register as a data controller for the patient records that I handle?

Ask DPL - I am a self-employed hygienist working in a general practice with two dentists. What difference does this make to me?

Ask DPL - Can a dental hygienist or therapist undertake examinations for patients following the change to direct access and could I provide this treatment for NHS patient’s under my dentist’s performer number?

Ask DPL - Can you tell me if there are any treatments that dental hygienists cannot provide under direct access?

Ask DPL - What has the GDC said about patient's having direct access to DCP's and how will the general public be protected?
