Inspection carried out on 13 March 2013

During a routine inspection

We saw that patients records showed that they consent to treatment and that patients were given a range of treatment options. One patient told us he fully understood his treatment options because these had been explained to them. This meant that patients understood their dental care and the choices available to them.

We found that the dental records for five patients were detailed and reflected the treatment given.

One patient told us the provider always checked his medical history prior to starting their treatment so that the dentist was aware of any medical conditions that would affect their treatment choices.

We found the premises were clean and fit for purpose. The patient satisfaction survey confirmed this.

We found staff understood the decontamination processes so that patients could be assured that instruments were hygienically safe to use.

The staff told us the provider fully supported their continued professional development and that the provider ensured that all relevant training was attended, so that staff were working within their sphere of competency.

We found staff records and other records relevant to the management of the services were accurate and fit for purpose.
