To all Employers



It has been brought to the attention of the Council that some dentists under Conditional Registration have not been receiving the necessary supervision during their conditional registration period.

Kindly note that section 14A(4) of the Dental Registration Act requires dentists registered under Conditional Registration to be supervised by a Division 1 dentist working in the same practice for a specified period (at least 2 years).

As an employer of dentists under Conditional Registration, please ensure that your supervisee(s) are being supervised at work at all times.

In the event that the assigned supervisor is unavailable to oversee the work of a supervisee for 30 days or more, the clinic must nominate another Division 1 dentist to supervise the Conditional Registrant. Approval must be sought from Council for the replacement.

If the assigned supervisor is away for less than a month, the clinic should ensure that another fully registered Division I dentist is present to provide the needed supervision.

Each nominated supervisor can only have a maximum of 2 dentists under their charge. In the event that the nominated supervisor is no longer with your organisation, we would appreciate if you could notify the Council and re-nominate another supervisor for the dentist under Conditional Registration.

Information on the roles and responsibilities of employers, supervisors and Director/Heads of Department are attached for your reference.
