Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order.)

This Order amends section 40 of the Dentists Act 1984 (“the 1984 Act”), which defines the “business of dentistry”. The 1984 Act prohibits the carrying on of the business of dentistry except by specified persons, but provides for certain exemptions. This Order adds a further exemption in respect of providers of personal dental services under the Health Services (Primary Care) (Northern Ireland) Order 1997 (“the 1997 Order”). Certain potential providers of personal dental services under that Order are already permitted by the 1984 Act to carry on the business of dentistry, or benefit from an exemption; but the list of potential providers of personal dental services in the 1997 Order is wider than the 1984 Act currently permits. This Order extends the exemptions in the 1984 Act so that it covers the complete list of potential providers of personal dental services under the 1997 Order.
