Overview

Inspection carried out on 4 June 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with four people about their experience of using Dentalign Orthodontics - Slough. Three people were at the early stages of assessment or treatment and one had recently finished their treatment. They were all very positive about their experience of care and treatment. We spoke with staff and looked at staff recruitment. We found people who used Dentalign Orthodontics - Slough were protected by the recruitment checks made on prospective dental and support staff. People we spoke with told us they felt confident in the standard of clinical practice they experienced and said staff were friendly and efficient.

We found consent was obtained before the start of any treatment. People's dental health needs were assessed and recorded and records kept of treatment were accurate and up to date.

We found the consulting rooms, waiting areas and facilities were kept clean. Dental equipment was service and maintained appropriately. There were procedures in place which ensured infection control measures were in place and being followed.

We found resuscitation equipment and medicines were in place to deal with medical emergencies. Staff told us they had received basic life support training. We found the equipment had been checked as required and all drugs were in place and in date. This showed there were arrangements in place to deal with foreseeable emergencies.
