The General Dental Council (GDC) will take this opportunity to assess and evaluate the answers from the questionnaires when making the final decision on the proposed changes (the questionnaire should be read in conjunction with the proposed changes).
The consultation will end on 26 May 2014.
The review provides an opportunity to update the documents in light of the new Standards for the Dental Team and Scope of Practice and ensure that they reflect the recommendations of the report of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry.
A number of areas that might be amended have also been identified following feedback from Quality Assurance (QA) inspectors, programme providers and the QA operations team.
The GDC is not proposing to make major changes or review its overall approach to quality assurance of education and training at this stage.
