    The CDBS will likely remain in operation until the end of the year, subject to the passage of legislation to close it passing through both houses of Parliament in the expected timeframe.

  • Neurotoxins and dermal fillers

    The use of these items has long been a subject of contention in the dental profession but current DBA policy largely leaves their use up to professional judgement.

    Infection control standards in Australia are rigorously enforced by regulatory requirements that tie continued registration as a dentist to compliance with infection control guidelines.

  • Scope of Practice

    Scope of practice is the term used to describe the full range of activities and responsibilities which professionals in dentistry are educated, trained and competent to perform and is integral to the practise of dentistry in Australia.
