The use of the Directory by third parties to verify information about, or the credentials of, dentists (including but not limited to health care entities, hospitals, insurance companies, and/or healthcare fund organisations) is not sufficient to meet the standards of any regulatory agency, licensing agency or credentialing body, such as the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) or others.
