Correction

In the Advice line dilemma 'Fill me in' on page 8 of the September issue of the DDU Journal we incorrectly stated that a dental practice would need to inform the Care Quality Commission (CQC) if it began to offer botulinum toxin injections.

While the CQC does regulate cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, it does not regulate 'subcutaneous injections to enhance appearance', as set out on page 38 of its Scope of Registration guidance (July 2012). This means that a dental practice would not need to notify the CQC or update its registration in these circumstances.

We have updated the advice given in the electronic version of the DDU Journal which is available on our website and we apologise for the confusion we may have caused to members.
