About us

To create our standards, we assembled some of the profession and industry’s top experts in their fields. Dental CSR standards are designed to be accessible and applicable for everyone to use to help grow their business. These experts have recognised qualifications and years of experience in their area of expertise, and have developed the standards from decades of working with clients and partners.

Each application is assessed against strict criteria, and if necessary, referred to our panel to adjudicate. Our standards are reviewed annually. For full transparency, we commission independent assessors to audit applications at each level to ensure the criteria are being fairly applied.
