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 to join BDA Good Practice

1. Work through the BDA Good Practice self-assessment

The self-assessment allows your 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. To find out more about the assessment, download an extract.

2. Make an application

To be approved on the scheme, each practice must have a BDA member. Use a BDA member log in to download the practice self-assessment. When your team has completed the practice self-assessment, download, complete and return the application form together with the fees.

The application assessment usually involves an on-site assessment by a BDA assessor. An on-site assessment is a valuable and collaborative experience to help you develop your practice.

Application fee: £450

BDA Good Practice membership: £320 (per year)


3. Celebrate your team's achievement!

On successful application, practices will receive a membership pack including a BDA Good Practice membership plaque and logo to help advertise your high standards. Your practice will also be listed on Find-a-practice. We also keep you updated with monthly newsletters and twice yearly celebration events in London and Manchester.

 

We currently have over 1,500 BDA Good Practice member practices throughout the UK who are enjoying the benefits membership brings to practices and patients.
