Ethical advertising GDC

Hi Everyone

I got an email from the GDC (General Dental Council) yesterday containing a draft of there ethical guidelines for dentist advertising there services. Whats interesting is that the GDC are saying Dentist cannot use the Title “Dr” when advertising there practices unless they posses a PhD or other qualifications.

here’s the link to the proposed guidelines:

15 years ago the General Dental Council allowed dentist to use the title “Dr” apparently that’s misleading¬†for the Patients now?? Surely changing it now would be more confusing ??

For more information on the General Dental Council please see this Wiki –http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Dental_Council

And Heres the link again for the GDC
