Care Quality Commission (CQC)

 

CQC – Meeting essential new standards of care and quality.

From 2011, all dental practices have been required to register with the CQC. This commission will eventually regulate all health and social care in England, including doctors, dentsists, nursing homes and hospitals, whether NHS or private.

Dental practices are required to meet 16 essential standards of quality and safety including cleanliness, infection control and care and welfare of patients. Denpoint Dental Care has had its application for registration with the CQC accepted.
