Overall inspection

Updated 31 December 2021

We carried out this announced inspection on 6 December 2021 under section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. We planned the inspection to check whether the registered provider was meeting the legal requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated regulations. The inspection was led by a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspector who was supported by a specialist dental adviser.

To get to the heart of patients’ experiences of care and treatment, we always ask five questions, however due to the ongoing pandemic and to reduce time spent on site, only the following three questions were asked:

• Is it safe?

• Is it effective?

• Is it well-led?

These questions form the framework for the areas we look at during the inspection.

Our findings were:

Are services safe?

We found this practice was providing safe care in accordance with the relevant regulations.

Are services effective?

We found this practice was providing effective care in accordance with the relevant regulations.

Are services well-led?

We found this practice was providing well-led care in accordance with the relevant regulations.


Windsor Road Dental Surgery is in West London in the London borough of Ealing and provides NHS and private dental care and treatment for adults and children.

There is level access to the practice from the rear of the building for people who use wheelchairs and those with pushchairs.

The practice is located close to public transport services and metered car parking spaces are available near the practice. The practice has three treatment rooms and a separate decontamination room.

The dental team includes the principal dentist, four associate dentists, three registered dental nurses and a receptionist.

The practice is owned by an individual who is the principal dentist there. They have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated regulations about how the practice is run.

During the inspection we spoke with the principal dentist, one associate dentist, two dental nurses and the receptionist.

We looked at practice policies and procedures and other records about how the service is managed.

The practice is open

Monday to Friday 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.

Saturday 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.

Our key findings were:

  • The practice appeared to be visibly clean and well-maintained.
  • The provider had infection control procedures which reflected published guidance.
  • There were systems in place to reduce the risks associated with the transmission of Covid-19.
  • The provider dealt with complaints positively and efficiently.
