Inspection carried out on 10 October 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with two people about their experiences of the service. All were complimentary. One person told us "I have been a patient of my dentist here for 25 years, they are brilliant".

With people's permission we observed two consultations. We also looked at dental notes and other records kept by the provider.

People were given appropriate information and support regarding their care and told us they understood the choices available to them. One person told us "I have had a number of treatments. It's always explained to me and I am told the costs".

The provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent it from happening.

People were protected from the risk of infection. They were cared for in a clean and safe environment.

People were cared for, or supported by, suitably qualified, skilled and experienced staff.

The provider had effective systems to check and monitor the quality of their service. There were also systems to identify, assess and manage risks to the health, safety and welfare of people using the service and others.
