During a routine inspection

This practice is located on the ground and first floor level. There were facilities provided on the ground floor to assist people who have restricted mobility. The service does not offer disable car parking bays and there are steps leading to the building. The premises consisted of a reception/waiting area, three treatment rooms, a decontamination room and a toilet. During this inspection we spoke with one dentist, two dental nurses, the office administrator, five people who used the service and a care staff.

We found that people were informed of their treatment options and their consent for treatment was obtained. One person who used the service said, "A X ray showed that I had tooth decay and my dentist explained what needed to be done and the benefits.�

Dental records provided relevant information to ensure people received the appropriate treatment.

We found that appropriate systems and practices were in place for the decontamination of dental instruments to reduce the risk of cross infection.

The staff recruitment practices ensured that all staff were suitable to work at the practice. One person who had recently used the service said, �All the staff are marvellous and very professional.�

The practice had an effective quality assurance monitoring system in place to ensure people were not at risk of inappropriate care or treatment.
