We’ve always been very proud of the high standards of care we provide, both in our clinical practice and in the steps we take to keep our patients comfortable and safe.
In early 2020 we decided that it was important to demonstrate our commitment to quality by becoming a QIP Accredited Dental Practice.
We are pleased that we achieved our goal on May 2, 2020.
What Is QIP Accreditation?
Accreditation is independent recognition that an organisation meets the requirements of governing industry standards.
We have chosen to follow the Private Dental Practice Accreditation Program . The Australian Dental Association established the program with Quality Innovation Performance Limited (QIP). QIP is a not-for-profit accreditation, certification and verification agency for health practices.
In the words of the agency,
QIP accreditation supports organisations to reassure their patients, consumers and clients that their team is committed to providing safe and quality service provision.
Why Is It Important To Choose An Accredited Practice?
When you see the QIP Accreditation logo, it is a sign that the practice displaying it is committed to:
- Providing you with high-quality services and support in a safe environment
- Strengthening engagement with you, the consumer, and the organisation’s community
- Embracing diversity—being respectful and understanding of differences, and
- Constantly improving to create positive outcomes. For Australian dental practices, accreditation is voluntary. It is a comprehensive process which requires great commitment to meet all the requirements.
