  • Handling the Media (UK) - May 2018

    Media scrutiny of you and your role within dentistry can put your personal and professional reputation at risk. Where a media query relates to issues that fall within the scope of the benefits of membership, the Dental Protection’s Press Office is on hand to provide expert advice throughout the process.

    Staffed by experienced communications professionals, our Press Office can liaise with reporters on your behalf, deal with enquiries, draft appropriate statements – and aim to correct any inaccuracies in the press, if necessary.

    Early advice from the Press Office can help prevent issues escalating. We advise you to contact your case handler if you have received press interest about an ongoing case or contact the Press Office directly about any other issues.
