HC Deb 16 March 1927 vol 203 cc2031-2W

asked the Minister of Health what tribunal will determine any differences which may arise between a dentist and a regional dental officer; and under what authority will any decision be given by such tribunal?


The function of a regional dental, officer is to furnish an independent professional opinion for the guidance of approved societies and dentists in connection with claims for dental benefit. If a dentist be dissatisfied with any action which a society, after consideration of the report of the regional dental officer, may take, or propose to take, he may refer the case to the. Dental Benefit Joint Committee, whose jurisdiction both societies and dentists have, under the new arrangements, agreed to accept.
