Dental Practices are small businesses that are being swamped with increased paperwork and auditing. This combined with increased financial pressure will drive dentists to "hang up their drills". This year alone we will have to provide "the same information" for BDA Good Practice Audits, PCT Annual Reviews, Denplan Accreditation, DRO inspection and probably CQC too.

It is important to comply with legislation and strive for best practice. This is why many practices have joined the BDA Good Practice Scheme.

Why not simply exempt practices from CQC who gain and maintain BDA Good Practice Status?

Why is this idea important?

This will allow us to focus on the business of providing quality dental care and will ensure continued tax contributions to HMRC. The government will also have the reassurance that practices are complying to British Dental Association guidelines without having the expense of auditing them!
