Dental Practice Accreditation

Acredited logo

Whilst Dental Practice Accreditation is not compulsory at the moment in Australia, at Sims Dental we are so proud of our quality of care and patient safety, we have become one of the first Dental Practices in Australia to voluntarily apply for and receive Dental Practice Accreditation.

What does this mean for our patients?

“Achieving accreditation demonstrates a commitment to the provision of excellent dental care and continuous quality improvement within the practice.”– Quality Innovation Performance

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, as well as the sustainable cost structures of a practice.

Furthermore, 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.

National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards for Dentist’s were adopted by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care in 2011. The attainment of these standards means a dental practice has proven to be of the highest calibre in delivering quality patient care within Australia.

Sims Dental proudly belongs to a new generation of accredited dental practices, offering the highest in quality patient care and sustainable cost structures for all patients.
