Other evidence

After an initial assessment, the dentists draw up a treatment plan in consultation with each person. We saw examples of complex and comprehensive treatment plans which had been sent to people for their consideration.

We sampled computerised records, which included medical and dental histories, treatment plans, information on work completed and risk assessments. Some patients choose to have long appointments of several hours to complete complex work, which the practice is able to accommodate.

An oral surgeon and the dentists undertake dental surgery. The practice offers different levels of sedation, including intravenous sedation, which is done by a qualified anaesthetist who comes to the practice when required. The anaesthetist liaises with patients and provides them with information, takes medical histories and completes risk assessments. He works closely with the dentists through this process and monitors the patients post sedation.

A small number of medications are safely kept on site, in line with an up to date medication policy.

Policies and procedures were up to date and reflected current best practice guidelines.

There was a procedure in place for dealing with serious incidents and medical emergencies. Staff had been trained to deal with medical emergencies. We saw emergency equipment and emergency medications, which were kept in an easily accessible place.
