Inspection carried out on 21 May 2013

During a routine inspection

During our inspection on 21 May 2013 we spoke with seven people who were attending appointments for treatment. Each person made positive comments about their care and treatment and said they had been treated with respect by all the staff. Some people reported they were not always treated by the same dentist and would have preferred to have been treated by the same dentist every time they had attended the surgery.

Care records showed that people's treatment had been adequately recorded.

The surgery was suitably protecting children and vulnerable adults from abuse. All staff had received appropriate training and the policies for safeguarding children and for vulnerable adults included the correct reporting arrangements that should be in

place relating to the Local Authority published guidelines.

We found suitable and appropriate infection control processes were in place to ensure people were not exposed to the risks of cross infection and that the appropriate published guidelines had been followed.

The premises were visibly very clean and had recently been extensively refurbished to a high standard. We saw that there were suitable arrangements in place to reduce the risks of fire.
