Overview

Inspection carried out on 24 September 2013

During a routine inspection

When we inspected Bucklersbury Dental Studio on 24 September 2013 we found that people were given information about their treatment and were asked for their consent. One person who was visiting the dental practice on the day of our inspection said, �The dentist always explains whatever is required in lots of detail. My [relative] also comes here and has had extensive treatment. We always know what is required and how much it is going to cost.�

People's dental needs were assessed and their treatment was planned in accordance with those needs. One person told us, �I feel very much involved. I always have a clear picture of what I need and I get to discuss with the dentist what the different available treatments are. I have been given a written treatment plan that broke everything down with the costs and the timescales.�

The dental practice operated hygienically and used decontamination procedures that were in accordance with Department of Health Guidance.

Staff received appropriate professional development that was relevant to their role. The dentists and the dental nurses undertook continuing professional development that ensured they maintained their professional registration.

The provider carried out a range of audits to ensure the practice was operating safely.
