Background to this inspection

Updated 7 January 2016

We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the practice was meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

We carried out a review of this service on 7 December 2015. This review was carried out to check that improvements to meet legal requirements planned by the practice after our comprehensive inspection on 26 May 2015 had been made. We reviewed the practice against one of the five questions we ask about services: is the service well-led? This is because the service was not previously meeting one of the legal requirements.

The review was led by a CQC inspector who had access to remote advice from a dental specialist advisor.

During our review, we spoke with the principal dentist and checked that the provider’s action plan had been implemented. We reviewed a range of documents including: recruitment references. logs for fire drills, purchase receipt for a fire extinguisher, completed fire risk assessment, purchase receipt for an oropharyngeal airway and oxygen mask. We also reviewed evidence of basic life support training for staff, updated complaints procedure and a policy on the importance of using rubber dam for root canal treatments.

Overall inspection

Updated 7 January 2016

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection of this service on 26 May 2015 as part of our regulatory functions where a breach of legal requirements was found. After the comprehensive inspection, the practice wrote to us to say what they would do to meet the legal requirements in relation to the breach.

We followed up on our inspection of 26 May 2015 to check that they had followed their plan and to confirm that they now met the legal requirements. This report only covers our findings in relation to those requirements. We have not revisited the Friern Barnet Dental Clinic as part of this review because Friern Barnet Dental Clinic were able to demonstrate that they were meeting the standards without the need for a visit.
