Dental Services

The regulatory environment for dentistry continues to evolve as HIQA’s remit extends to medical exposures to ionising radiation in both public and private dental practices.

In addition to these standards, dental services must comply with various Codes of Practices from the Dental Council.

To maintain high standards of patient safety and quality improvement in dentistry, it is critical that dental services have a Quality and Safety Management System (QSMS) in place to drive quality improvement and ensure ongoing compliance with dental regulations, standards and best practice guidance.


How HCI Can Help

At HCI, we understand the challenges with demonstrating dental regulatory compliance. We work with services to conduct dental practice audits against the applicable regulations, standards, Code of Practices and best practice guidelines.

Our audit programme offers independent dental quality assurance, helping to identify areas of good practice and areas for quality improvement in dentistry. With our support you can prepare for a regulatory inspection by ensuring you have necessary processes in place to achieve regulatory compliance.



HCI has worked with health and social care organisations for almost two decades, supporting them to build comprehensive Quality and Safety Management Systems.
