The Dental Council of Hong Kong


The Dental Council of Hong Kong is established under the Dentists Registration Ordinance, Chapter 156, Laws of Hong Kong. It provides for the registration and regulation of the dental profession in order to protect patients, foster ethical conduct, and develop and upkeep the ethical standard of the profession. The Dental Council is responsible for the registration of dentists, the conduct of the Licensing Examination, the maintenance of ethics, professional standards and discipline of the profession.

The subsidiary legislation, Ancillary Dental workers (Dental Hygienists) Regulations, of the Dentists Registration Ordinance empowers the Council to provide enrolment and regulation of the dental hygienist. A roll of enroled dental hygienists is maintained by the Council.
