Inspection carried out on 24 July 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with four patients, three dentists, three dental professionals and a receptionist during this inspection.

Patients said they were involved in decisions about their treatment and dental care. One patient said, "the dentist draws pictures to explain any conditions I have and what the treatment they suggest will do for me." Patients' privacy and dignity was respected.

We looked at four patient records and they contained treatment plans, medical histories and information on patient's oral health. Patients told us they were satisfied with the dental care they received. Dentists undertook comprehensive checks on patient's oral health during check-ups.

The practice was clean and met standards required by the Department of Health for decontaminating instruments. There was a hygiene and infection control audit programme in place. The most recent audit was April 2013.

Staff were supported in their professional development. Clinical staff met the professional development requirements set by the General Dental Council.
