Comment

I was talking to my dentist brother last night. A few years ago, the GDC decided to regulate not just dentists but also dental nurses and hygienists. This has resulted in a 55% rise in annual retention fees for dentists of £790 per year. How long will it be before the GMC follow this path? The difference between the BDA and the BMA is that the former have a back bone and are taking the GDC to court for the extortionate fees and fitness to practice hearings taking 18 months. The BMA could learn a few things from the BDA.
