What is the Denplan Excel Certification Programme?
We’re delighted to have become a Denplan Excel practise after months of hard work and assessment. It recognises our commitment to customer relations and high clinical standards. The programme, developed by Denplan, was the first to be approved by the Patients Association and helps dentists to develop better relationships with their patients through good communication and quality care.
By joining the Denplan Excel Certification Programme we’re continuously improving the quality of our practice. You’ll have a visible sign of our commitment to quality – a sign that proves to our practice team, our patients, fellow dentists and the general public that we have reached the high standards required set by the programme.
As well as demonstrating that the quality of care, treatment and service we provide is among the best available, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that our practice exceeds standards of clinical governance, statutory requirements and industry best practice recommendations.
The Excel programme is recognised by the British Dental Health Foundation and the introduction of DEPPA (an online oral health assessment) has further enhanced the benefits available.
The Excel programme has been recognised by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) who are the sole national accreditation body recognised by the government to assess organisations that provide certificate services against internationally agreed standards.
UKAS accreditation of the Excel programme is groundbreaking as this is the first dental programme or service in the world to achieve such recognition. As the GDC move towards introducing a revalidation scheme (known as “continuing assurance”) and the other regulators refine their approaches, we believe that this places Excel dentists in a prime position.
