Scottish Dental Reference Service (SDRS)

This small independent team of SDRS monitors the standard and quality of NHS dental treatment by inspecting the patient's mouth, either before extensive work is carried out or after it.

Every year the Dental Reference Officers (DRO) examine a number of patients, chosen at random.
