Raising a concern - The Australian Dental Council

Raising a concern

We welcome concerns from the public about accredited programs.

This is one source of information that helps us ensure accredited programs continue to meet the Australian Dental Council/Dental Council (New Zealand) Accreditation standards for dental practitioner programs (the Standards). The Standards help ensure only those dental practitioners trained and qualified to practise in a competent and ethical manner are eligible for registration in Australia.

The How to raise a concern about an accredited program guide has more information about the concerns we can consider and the process we follow. Our Concerns About accredited programs policy also has information on the process.

Please complete the form below to raise your concern with us.
