Inspection carried out on 8 August 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

At the last inspection in June 2013 we found Tooth Smart Dental Care non-compliant with Regulation 21 of the Health and Social Care Act (HSCA). This was because references and security checks had not been completed for three members of staff before they started work at the practice. At this inspection we found that the provider had taken the steps they needed to achieve compliance.

We found that outstanding checks were carried out to ensure staff were of good character had been carried out .There were now systems to ensure appropriate checks were carried out before people started work. The manager told us, �They are not allowed to start in the practice until all relevant documents have been collected and processed and we have seen the result." Records we saw confirmed this.
