Dental Law

Dental Law

As a prominent provider of high quality legal services to dental practices, we can advise on all aspects of the legislative framework, which regulates dentistry, as well as being able to provide legal representation on contractual documents and variations. Our team can provide expert advice to dentists in all aspects of buying, selling and running dental practices, including the complex laws surrounding GDS and PDS contracts. We will also support your practice in relation to any particular rules, regulations and requirements of the General Dental Council, the Care Quality Commission, the NHS and all other legislation governing the profession. We also support organisations and professional bodies on the rules and regulations governing the profession.

Our specialist experience enables us to offer relevant advice in a number of other general areas of practice:

NHS contracts

As the new contracts were introduced for NHS dentistry in April 2006, all practices doing NHS work must now consider how their units of dental activity are to be delivered by principals and associates hence to avoid the consequences that might result from under performance.

Purchase and sale of dental practices

We have vast amount of experience in the purchase and sale of practices.

Partnership agreements and expense sharing

We can help with preparing agreements to deal with partnerships, advising on buy-out provisions and partnership disputes as well as dissolutions.

Employment

We have a dedicated employment team able to provide a range of advice on employment issues including contracts of employment, disciplinary and termination procedures, discrimination law and other elaborate problems occurring during the employment relationship.
