Dental regulation support

The dental landscape is always evolving

Regulations develop and change as patients' needs adapt. Staying up to date with these changes can be a full-time job. Our team stays on top of these changes, and makes sure our member dentists are kept informed.


We work with law makers to understand changes to regulations and legislation. We make them easy to understand and apply. And we're on hand to help you apply vital changes.


Like you, quality is our core focus. We've created a unique range of professional services to support quality in your practice. The Oral Health Foundation (OHF) has given its stamp of approval to two of our top services:

  • The Denplan Quality Programme - an industry-leading quality assurance plan
  • Denplan Excel accreditation
  • With Denplan Plus, you can choose a free compliance healthcheck or Excel membership*

 *Excel membership available to practices with 250 Denplan patients or more

Care Quality Commission (CQC) Guidance


Get unique assistance, assurance, and practical support with Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections.


Since 1 April 2011, all dental practices in England are required to register with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We have produced straightforward guidance to help practices. Our team will advise you when you apply for registration. And we will offer guidance as you prepare for an inspection by the CQC.


We can give you:


  • Practical assistance to reduce the impact of registration and inspection of your practice
  • Explanation of the Standards of Quality and Safety
  • A downloadable guide to help you complete the application form, registered manager forms, and DBS (formerly CRB) checks
  • A downloadable guide to help you compile the information and evidence you'll need for a CQC inspection
  • A Quality Manual and Decontamination Manual. These manuals contain template policies and protocols, and cover almost all aspects of CQC and HTM 01-05 compliance
  • An optional, expanded Statement of Purpose to have available for a CQC Inspector
