Community Dental Service/Salaried Dental Care Services

Dental Protection's dento-legal advisers are aware of the various challenges to members who are working in the Community Dental Service/SPDCS. 

These challenges can be of a clinical nature involving the treatment of a difficult or medically compromised patient and our dento-legal advisers are always available to offer advice and support. We also have a team of experienced experts who can be called upon to give an independent view of the clinical situation.

From time to time members who have a management role contact Dental Protection for advice when they feel that their professional reputation as a manager may be being impugned by a colleague or senior manager. Our dento-legal advisers, some of whom have worked within the community service, are always happy to provide the necessary support and assistance.
