Practice policy

At Guinea Court Dental Surgery we follow a strict practice policy.

Our Basingstoke Dental Practice aims to provide dental care of a consistent quality, for all patients. We have management systems to help us and which define each dental practice member's responsibilities when looking after you.

  1. In proposing treatment we will take account of your own wishes. We will explain options, where appropriate, and costs, so that you can make an informed choice. We will always explain what we are doing.
  2. We will do all we can to look after your general health. We will ask you about your general health, and about any medicines being taken. This helps us to treat you safely. We keep all information about you confidential.
  3. Cross-infection control is also essential to the safety of our patients. Every practice member receives training in practice systems for cross infection control.
  4. We screen all patients for mouth cancer at routine check-ups. We ask patients about tobacco and alcohol use because they increase your oral cancer risk.
  5. Practice working methods are reviewed regularly at meetings of all staff. We encourage all staff to make suggestions for improving the care we give patients.
  6. All dentists, hygienists and dental nurses in our Chineham Dental Practice take part in continuing professional education, meeting the General Dental Council's requirements. We aim to keep up-to-date with current thinking on all aspects of general dentistry, including preventive care which reduces your need for treatment.
  7. All staff joining the practice are given training in practice-wide procedures. Once a year, there is an individual review of training needs for everyone in our North Hampshire Dental Practice.
  8. All members of Guinea Court Dental Surgery know of the need to ensure that dentists are working safely. In the unlikely event that a dentist in this practice becomes unfit to practice, we have systems to ensure that concerns are investigated and, if necessary, acted upon.
  9. As a family practice we take our concerns regarding the environment and the future impact on our children very seriously. In addition to our commitment to saving resources ie electricity, water and gas we recycle as much waste as we possibly can. We have reduced our waste to landfill by 50% over the last two years.
