In accordance with its policy on Blood Borne Viruses, the Queensland Dental Board directed that an HIV positive dentist was not to undertake any exposure prone dental procedures. The dentist claimed that the policy was discriminatory because it did not take into account individual practitioner factors, such as viral load and procedural technique. The Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal found that the policy was not discriminatory as it had a "logical and understandable basis" and was "patently reasonable". In any event, the Tribunal found that the policy had been applied in a way that was reasonably necessary to protect public health. M v Dental Board of Queensland [2011] QCAT 373
