BDA Good Practice

Recognising your commitment to quality 

BDA Good Practice is a quality assurance programme that allows its members to communicate to patients an ongoing commitment to working to standards of good practice on professional and legal responsibilities.

The Good Practice requirements can be used by all providers of outpatient dental care, including general dental practices (both private and NHS), specialist practices, salaried primary dental care services, armed forces clinics and outpatient departments.

BDA Good Practice provides:

  • Practice development and assessment against requirements

  • Recognition from the BDA that can be communicated to your patients

  • A framework for developing a patient centred service

  • Tools for growing a confident, professional and inspired team

  • Opportunities for business development

  • Assurances to increase chances of successful tendering



How BDA Good Practice works

The first step to membership is to work through the practice self-assessment. This allows the team to reflect on the current systems within the practice and develop a continuous cycle of learning and development in the delivery of dental care.

When you have completed the self-assessment, you are ready to submit your application for membership.

All applications are assessed via an onsite assessment or submission of evidence. If successful, the practice is provided with a membership plaque for display in the practice and the BDA Good Practice logo for use on the practice website and literature.
