This page gives links to organisations and professionals with whom we have a close working relationship. We have also included links to some dentistry organisations that you may find helpful.

Care Quality Commission

Care Quality Commission:  www.cqc.org.uk

For the first time dental practices have been subject to an application and inspection process by The Care Quality Commission (CQC). This has been designed to ascertain compliance with their published standards on a wide variety of issues. They paid particular attention to the sterilisation (decontamination) of dental instruments, to patient consent and to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. We were inspected in January 2012 and we are pleased to tell you that the CQC inspectors reported us to be 100% compliant. They made no recommendations for changes of any kind.
You can read a very brief summary of that assessment on this page of the CQC website.
