Fitness to Practise

Presented by John Waite. Criticised for its complaint handling and with a backlog of work, is the UK's dental regulator up to the task of protecting the public?

The organisation we count on to protect us from dangerous or incompetent dentists is having its own abilities called into question. There have been a series of critical reports into the way the General Dental Council deals with complaints. There's a backlog of work, it has had 4 chief executives in a little over a year and the resignation of a chair prompted the government to demand an investigation. So is our dental watchdog fit to practise?
