Patient’s First, it’s as simple as that. How mydentist Peel Street became a notable practice.
At mydentist, we are passionate about delivering the highest standards of care whilst providing the best working environments for our clinicians and practice staff. All of our practices provide the highest standards of care to our patients, but we are delighted that 4 of our practices have been awarded as “Notable” by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
In 2016 the CQC first introduced “notable” as practices that they deemed as going above and beyond for patients as examples for the primary dental care sector. In total, 26 practices in the UK have been identified as notable upon inspection by the CQC, 4 of which being mydentist practices.
Connected to the Communities we serve
mydentist Peel Street in Barnsley, is one of those four practices after the CQC felt the pracas proactive in providing oral health advice and treatment to patients. Parents benefit from dedicated areas of the waiting room which are used to discuss oral hygiene and dietary advice for children. Moreover, Peel Street regularly organise kids clubs during school holidays and frequently visit local schools to provide oral hygiene advice to local children.
As well as doing the utmost for the local community, mydentist Peel Street has worked tirelessly to ensure there are strong peer communities also, and that the team feels like a family. The practice regularly organise peer review groups for other local practices, giving other practices an opportunity to discuss cases with the Dentists and offer support and training.
mydentist Managing Director, Steve Melton recently visited the practice and said: “It is fantastic to receive external recognition of the outstanding standards. This is the result of lots of hard work and focus on delivering great care to our patients. Our practice and compliance teams should be very proud of what they have achieved.”
Restless in the pursuit of quality.
Peel street has recently also been recognised as 1 of 8 ‘Centres of Excellence’ in the mydentist family and has been transformed into an Advanced Oral Health Centre. This will enable the team to continue to pursue high quality, innovative patient care.
The state of the art technology implemented into the practice means patients can fully engage in the diagnostic and treatment planning stages of treatment with our new Trios 3D scanner and smile design. The CBCT scanner supports best practice when diagnosing and treatment planning implant procedures and gives patients peace of mind.
Dentist, Dimitrios Stougiannos says ‘The state of the art technology has significantly improved the uptake of treatment plans. Being able to follow a digital workflow technology means less room for error and a highly satisfied patient’
As a team they all feel the rebranding has given the practice an elite feel. Jessica Evans, Treatment Coordinator said “I am very proud of the team and practice I work in. The new look practice and state of the art technology benefit our patients and clinicians alike. I take pride in offering an elite patient journey to mimic the look and feel of the practice. We are very much in competition being a town centre practice and the new look has made us stand out and has drawn positive attention. More than ever we have walk in clients looking for us to help them achieve their dream smile”.
