Dental Board of Australia seeking applications for List of Approved Persons for hearing panels

Applications are being sought for appointment to the List of Approved Persons for hearing panels from active and engaged consumers or community advisors who can represent the community. Applications are also sought from dental practitioners who hold registration with the Dental Board of Australia.

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) regulates more than 800,000 registered health practitioners and over 180,000 registered students across 16 health professions.

Under the National Law, health panels and performance and professional standards panels are convened by National Boards when required to hold hearings into specific health, performance or conduct matters for individual registered health professionals. Such panels consist of members chosen from the list of persons approved by the National Board.
