7 more dental practices inspected by CQC

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has been providing the results of each of their inspections into dental practices on a regular basis and their latest batch of inspection results has just been announced. The practices inspected were:

  • Gosport Dental Centre – Hampshire
  • Ixia – Bromley
  • Nicoll’s Dental Care – Cumbria
  • Peace Dental Centre – Brent
  • Precise Dental Care – Basildon and Brentwood
  • Start-Smiling – Basildon and Brentwood
  • The Village Dental Practice – Bromley

Similarly to the other health and social care sectors inspected by CQC, dental reports describe whether services provided are safe, effective, caring and responsive to patient need and well led. Over the next 12 months, CQC plans to inspect 10 per cent of England’s 10,000 dental practices. Unlike most other regulated sectors, primary care dental services will not be given a rating in 2015/16.

Full reports on the four inspections are available at:
