International Society of Dental Regulators

Regulators, dentists and academics will gather in London, UK on October 5-6 for the 5th International Society of Dental Regulators Conference (ISDR). Experts from across the globe will discuss and evaluate regulatory systems designed to ensure the professionalism and competence of dental professionals.

This year’s Conference focuses on current and future regulatory challenges including the evolving level of competences granted by a State to a regulatory body, and the current reactions of dental regulators to the developments in ICT, eHealth and mHealth.

Examples of evolving regulatory models discussed by the UK General Dental Council and the Portuguese Dental Association will be highlighted.

The ISDR Conference will present recent OECD’s insights on 'Disruptive innovation and regulated professions' and insights from Dr Barry Dolman, President, ISDR & Président, Ordre des Dentistes du Québec, on 'Embracing technology and social media in regulation', allowing us to examine patients’, practitioners' and regulators’ perspectives on the fast and furious ICT evolution.
