Our lawyers helped to license a number of dental offices in Ukraine

The beginning of 2017 was marked by an increased activity in licensing medical practice. As in past years, dental specialties were the most popular. That is why we decided to separate licensing and support of dental offices, medical centers and health clinics from other medical law practices.

The most popular specialties among our clients are general dentistry, therapeutic dentistry and dental orthopaedics. Surgical dentistry and orthodontics are less popular, but still high-demand specialties. Children's dentistry is the least required specialty, and can be found mainly in large medical and dental centres that provide a full range of dental services. Searching a room for the dental practice has always been a hard process. Premises should meet sanitary standards, as well as they should be situated in the correct location from the standpoint of convenience for the patients at the same time. Only a long-term partnership with a lessor is suitable for such activities and that can often entail a number of potential risks to the owner of the dentistry. Read about such situation in the case studies of our practice of medical law OUR LAWYERS SUPPORTED SIGNING OF LEASE ON A DENTAL CLINIC

Searching premises for a dental office has always been a complex process. They shall meet health and safety regulations, as well as some requirements related to their location in terms of convenience for patients. Only a long-term partnership with the lessor is suitable for such activities, which can often entail a number of risks for the owner of the dental office. You can find more information on the practical cases from our experience in the article below.

Dentist and dental lab technician shall obtain two different licenses. Those years had witnessed a dramatic intensification in licensing the latter junior specialists. Dentists (dental hygienists) contacted our firm for licensing services both independently and as employees working for individual entrepreneurs or legal entities. At the same time, dental lab technicians worked either as a separate dental laboratory, which united several dental lab technicians, or as a dental laboratory within the dental clinic. Although the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection has the decisive word on whether a premise is suitable for practicing medicine in, doctors looking for a medical office may rely on the general compliance criteria at the early stages. You can learn more about the general requirements for areas and structure of premises used for medical practice here.

The most popular trend at the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 was licensing of individual entrepreneurs without medical education. To learn more about our experience in licensing individual entrepreneurs without medical education, please follow this link. Obtaining a medical license without having dental or other education in the medical field has become possible due to the latest amendments in the medical practice license regulations, which are highlighted here. More than ten businessmen with the staff of 5-7 employees have successfully obtained the license for a private medical practice with our help by now. Until 2018, the most problematic point of dentist's rooms opening was probably the placement of X-ray equipment. You can get information if where there any significant changes in the position of the Ministry of Healthcare from the article on our site THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH OF UKRAINE POINTS TO IMPORTANCE OF PROVISION OF ANTI-RADIATION PROTECTION IN DENTISTRY

Until 2018, the placement of X-ray equipment was probably the most sticking point when opening a dental office. You can learn whether the position of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine has changed significantly in this regard today from our company’s information material.
