Quality in dentistry
Across the world today, the provision of healthcare has a prominent place in national political systems, and oral health is increasingly accepted as an integral part of general health.
The Quality in Dentistry project was established in 2019 to provide a general framework for improving quality by creating an appropriate toolkit which considers different aspects of quality in dentistry and the involvement of all parties concerned. The toolkit does not propose a standard level of quality that can be achieved in every country, nor does it define a minimum level of quality. Instead, the toolkit aims to outline criteria that can be used by institutions, funding agencies, professional organizations and practitioners to enable them to set up systems that can help improve quality, whatever their needs, resources, and objectives may be.
