William (Bill) Moyes has been re-appointed to Chair the General Dental Council until 2021, having been originally appointed to office in 2013.
The Society hope that this will see some continuity over the coming months as the GDC engage with the dental profession through the concept of “Shifting the Balance”. We hope there will be a greater opportunity to look at the role of the dental nurse, their scope of practice and we would welcome the opportunity to contribute to the wider debate of dental nurse education, learning and development.
Dental nurses are key in the smooth running of the dental environment and are at the forefront of patient care, if we are true to the Five Year Forward Plan and the wider picture of dental reform this professional group should be embraced.
We congratulate Bill Moyes on his re-appointment and will on behalf of our members be contributing to the work along the way.
