Your Role in Clinical Dental Technology
As a registered Clinical Dental Technician, you are part of a multidisciplinary dental team.
As a registered professional, you are required to work, at all times, in the best interest of your patients and provide any treatments competently and ethically within the limits of your training.
You should ensure you have the correct protocols in place enabling referral to an appropriately qualified and registered professional should you find a case outside your scope of competence.
You should be aware of, and understand, all appropriate regulations and ethical guidance as laid down by the General Dental Council and other agencies.
A complete set of guidance documents is available, from the General Dental Council, on request.
You should be aware that activities outside your professional work can also impinge on the reputation of the profession and you may be called to account for unprofessional conduct and bringing the profession into disrepute.
