Safeguarding Children

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is defined by the UK government as:

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children's health or development
  • ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes.

Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play in safeguarding children and protecting them from harm. It is everyone’s responsibility.

But dental professionals are additionally required by law to keep children safe.
