“Achieving accreditation demonstrates a commitment to the provision of excellent dental care and continuous quality improvement within the practice.”- Quality Innovation Performance (QIP)
What is Practice Accreditation?
The accreditation of private dental practices is based on the integration of a set of National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards into everyday practice culture and patient safety. These standards harmonise regulatory requirements passed down by both Federal and State Governments, with highlights being the demonstration of clear and evidence based patient benefits when visiting an accredited practice.
What this means for you
We are very proud to be among the very first practices in the Riverina to be awarded full accreditation. When choosing an accredited practice a patient can expect a reduction in clinical and general risks, as well as the peace of mind in knowing that all staff are educated and engaged in the implementation of dental systems and improvement of dental processes within their practice.
The attainment of NSQHS Standards means a dental practice has proven to be of the highest calibre in delivering quality patient care within Australia. We assure you that we are committed to ongoing improvement of the policies and procedures that govern our dental practice, providing assurance to patients, staff, colleagues and peers that we are committed to quality, safety and excellence across all standards.
Your Health & Safety – infection control
At Morgan Street Dental Centre, your health and safety are of paramount importance. We have a dedicated sterilisation room which includes state-of-the-art equipment and we maintain the highest standard of infection control. Sterilisation procedures are designed to protect you against the transmission of diseases and infection. Anything that goes inside a patient’s mouth is either disposed of or sterilised between patients in one of our autoclaves. All dental procedures are undertaken using aseptic techniques. We follow the Australian & NZ Standards 4815, the 4187 Standards and the ADA Guidelines for Infection Control amongst others.
