Regulation of private dental clinics

20 October 2015

magnifying glassRegulation of Private Dental Clinics in Scotland:

From April 2016 Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) will start regulating all independent clinics in Scotland – that is, those clinics not carrying out any NHS care.

This includes any entirely private dental clinic, whether owned by a dentist or dental care professional.

Practices delivering NHS care are currently inspected on a 3-yearly cycle by their local NHS Board using the national Combined Practice Inspection checklist and are not affected by this.
