Care Quality CommissionCQC – Meeting essential new standards of care and quality.

2011 is the year all dental practices are 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 will be required to meet 16 essential standards of quality and safety including cleanliness, infection control and care and welfare of patients. Linden House has now been inspected by the CQC and received a faultless report.

To view this independent report please visit and select Dentists. Add the practice name in the search box and the full report can be downloaded.

Here at Linden House Dental Practice we are always very keen to involve our patients and get views on the service we provide. We’d be delighted if you’d take a few minutes to complete our anonymous patient questionnaire and leave feedback in our comments box on your next visit.
