Statement of Purpose Policy

The Registered Manager at our practice is Juliane Scandian.

Our practice has exceptionally high values regarding patient care and will continue to strive to achieve goals
and provide patient satisfaction. Our practice aims to provide excellent oral health treatments in line with
local and national guidelines to children and adults of all needs by offering outstanding services across all of
the counties and communities they serve. We understand the importance of having an in-depth understanding
and knowledge of local patients’ needs and the benefits their views can have on our services and regularly
carry out patient satisfaction surveys and have implemented a ‘suggestion box’ to ensure we are responsive
to our patient’s needs.

Our practice staff consists of; General Dental Practitioners (GDP’s) and Dental Care Professionals (DCP’s),
who form part of a very diverse work force and we have a successful track record in recruiting and retaining
both GDP’s and DCP’s. We often recruit DCP’s from within the local area as they can bring us local
knowledge and where appropriate an understanding of the cultural and language needs of the patients. All
team members are adequately trained, updated and appraised annually and keep an up to date record of their
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in line with the current General Dental Council (GDC)
guidelines; newly recruited staff are given intense training in use of our systems and the importance of
patient confidentiality.

All our employees have knowledge of national guidelines and can provide a service based on these, which
include: Standards for Better Health, Delivering Better Oral Health, Smoke Free and Smiling, to mention a
few.
