Dental Practice Accreditation – What Does It Mean for Me?

Honest Tooth Dental Care is now an accredited dental practice! In May 2023, Quality Innovation Performance (QIP) recognised our practice as part of the Private Dental Practice Accreditation program. This involved the practice being independently assessed for compliance with the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards which are an Australia-wide measure of quality in healthcare set by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality. 

So what does this mean for our patients? It means that when you visit our practice, you can be assured that you are being cared for in facilities that have been evaluated as meeting the highest standards in relation to our safety and quality processes, including our infection prevention and control and how we engage with our patients and their families. 

Even though we’re delighted that Honest Tooth Dental Care has been recognised in this way, we don’t rest on our laurels! We’re continuously investing in the latest equipment and technology, as well as being passionate about providing a safe and caring environment for our patients to receive their oral healthcare. 

If you’d like to understand more about the accreditation process, what it involves and how we demonstrated our commitment to the standards, please ask when you’re next at the practice, and we’d be delighted to show you more.
