In 2009 a new set of civil procedure rules were introduced to the Isle of Man. These rules are broadly based on the Civil Procedure Rules brought in under the Woolf Reforms in England and Wales in the 1990s. The new Isle of Man Civil Procedure Rules are different to those of England and Wales.

The Isle of Man is a self-governing Crown-dependent territory of the UK with its own Parliament (Tynwald) which legislates for the Isle of Man domestically and in some cases, but certainly not all, such legislation is similar to that passed in the UK.

This topic looks at the Dental Act 1985 of Tynwald and its (Amendment) Order 2006, and the Isle’s Department of Health and Social Security (DHSS). Under the National Health Service Act 2001 of Tynwald, the DHSS is responsible for making arrangements with dental practitioners in the Isle of Man for services under the NHS to patients.
