Inspection carried out on 18 February 2013

During a routine inspection

Our visit was discussed and arranged with the practice two working days in advance. This was to ensure that we had time to see and speak to staff working at the practice. During the inspection we spoke with the provider (who was also a dentist at the practice), the practice manager, deputy practice manager, two dental nurses and a second dentist. After our inspection visit we spoke with six people who were registered with the practice to ask them about their experiences of the service.

People that used the practice told us that they were happy with the quality of treatment received. They felt they were given enough information about their treatment options and were able to ask all the questions they wanted to. Their comments included, ��They explain everything��, ��Their main concern is patient care�� and ��I feel in safe hands, all my children go there.��

People told us that the practice was clean and tidy and that they had no concerns about hygiene. We found that the provider had effective infection control procedures in place ensuring the risk of infection was minimised.

Staff received a range of training so that they had up to date knowledge and skills in order to treat people safely when they attended the practice.
