BDA Good Practice Overview
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.
