Summary of this inspection

Why we carried out this inspection

This was a routine inspection to check that essential standards of quality and safety referred to on the front page were being met. We sometimes describe this as a scheduled inspection.

This was an unannounced inspection.

How we carried out this inspection

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 20 March 2013, observed how people were being cared for and checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care. We talked with people who use the service and talked with staff.

What people told us and what we found

We found that people were involved in every aspect of their treatment planning and made all the decisions about their dental care. People were given detailed information to ensure they could make an informed choice about which course of treatment they wished to follow. People told us that their treatment plans and options were ''very carefully explained''. They told us that ''everything is put in writing and I have to give my written consent to everything''.

People told us that they always felt safe with the surgery staff and said that they always felt ''welcome and comfortable''. They said that they felt ''fully confident and safe at all times, including during and after sedation''.

The practice followed infection control procedures to ensure that the environment and all dental equipment and tools were hygienic and clean. People told us that hygiene and cleanliness standards were ''excellent''.

The practice had developed ways of checking that they maintained and improved the quality of care they were providing to their patients. People told us that the treatment they received was ''exemplary'' and they had ''no concerns or complaints''. They said that they wouldn't ''hesitate to complain if necessary'' and they were ''confident that the dentists would take immediate action.''

You can see our judgements on the front page of this report.

Our judgements for each standard inspected

Respecting and involving people who use services Met this standard

People should be treated with respect, involved in discussions about their care and treatment and able to influence how the service is run

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

People's privacy, dignity and independence were respected.

People's views and experiences were taken into account in the way the service was provided and delivered in relation to their care.

Reasons for our judgement

People expressed their views and were involved in making decisions about their care and treatment. We saw that the practice had a policy which instructed staff how to ensure people made their own decisions and gave their consent. We looked at five treatment plans which showed that individuals provided written consent and agreement to their treatment plans. Verbal agreements were made at each attendance for treatment and this was recorded on the patient notes by the dentist. Copies of people's agreements were 'scanned' into their computer files. People told us that their treatment plans and options were ''very carefully explained''. They told us that ''everything is put in writing and I have to give my written consent to everything''. People were given a written treatment plan with alternative treatments and costs so that they could take time to decide on the option they preferred.

People's diversity, values and human rights were respected. The practice had an 'equality and diversity' policy for patients and staff and a 'disabled patients' policy. Any special needs such as physical or health needs were noted on treatment plans. The computer system used generated a 'pop up' box to ensure that the dentists and nurses would be immediately aware of any special needs. An example we saw was a person who had some special needs. They were given an extended appointment so that staff had additional time to explain the treatments and ensure they understood what was going to happen to them. The surgery manager told us that they had links to interpreter services if needed. There was a ground floor surgery which had wheelchair access and was availableto anyone who had mobility difficulties. There was a ramp up to the entrance of the surgeryand wheelchair friendly toilet facilities.

People who used the service were given appropriate information and support regarding their treatment. People were given a leaflet which detailed the services that the practice offered. The practice had a website which fully described all the services available. There were further leaflets available in the reception area that explained specific treatments such

as sedation, CT Scanning and single tooth replacement.

People, who used the service, told us that the dentists and nurses always respected their privacy and dignity. We saw that the practice had a policy which told staff how to ensure that people were always treated with dignity and respect and that all personal information was treated confidentially. The practice had rooms available for private consultations and discussions.

Care and welfare of people who use services Met this standard

People should get safe and appropriate care that meets their needs and supports their rights

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

People experienced care, treatment and support that met their needs and protected their rights.

Reasons for our judgement

People's dental needs were assessed and treatment was planned and delivered in line with their individual plan. New patients completed an introduction form that included a medical history. The new patient then had a consultation which formed the basis for a full dental assessment. The dentists and nurses updated the electronic records after each visit. Medical histories were reviewed at the beginning of each course of treatment. The dentist verbally checked medical histories at each visit and full medical history assessments were completed at set intervals. The computer generated a pop up reminder when up-dated medical histories were required. The five treatment plans we looked at were detailed and up to date.

People were able to see a dentist on the same day if they required emergency treatment. One person told us that they had successfully asked for an emergency appointment on two occasions. The practice had an out of hours rota that covered extended hours, until 10pm during the week and from 9am until 5pm at the weekends.

Care and treatment was planned and delivered in a way that ensured people's safety and welfare. The computer system generated a 'pop up warning' if people suffered from any special needs or medical conditions. The dentist looked at any risks at each visit. They made a clinical judgement of how to minimise the individual risks. We saw examples of people who suffered from allergies and infectious conditions and the actions taken to minimise these risks. Staff members were able to describe how they minimised risk. People were provided with written post operative instructions. We saw evidence that the practice made referrals to other professionals and/or practices as appropriate. People told us that they were referred to other dentists or health professionals, if necessary.

The treatment plan noted appointment intervals and 'check up' schedules. A staff member sent recall letters to patients to remind them of their appointment/schedule. They monitored attendance and telephoned people if they did not arrange timely appointments or missed appointments. People were telephoned the day before their appointment to remind them what time they were due.

People told us that they were always treated with respect and said they always felt ''welcome'' when visiting the service and were ''comfortable and very happy'' with the care

and treatment they received.

| Inspection Report | Pentangle Dental Transformations | April 2013 www.cqc.org.uk 10

Safeguarding people who use services from abuse Met this standard

People should be protected from abuse and staff should respect their human rights

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

Reasons for our judgement

People who used the service were protected from the risk of abuse because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent it from happening. The practice had a comprehensive vulnerable adults and patients policy. It described how to recognise abuse and what action to take. Staff we spoke with described how they would deal with a safeguarding concern. We saw that staff discussed the safeguarding policy during team meetings. The provider may find it useful to note that staffdid not receive 'formal training with regard to safeguarding adults and the local authorities' safeguarding policy was not available for staff reference. This meant that staff's knowledgecould be incomplete and people may therefore not be protected as well possible.

Staff described how they would consider a person's ability to consent when treating a vulnerable adult. The practice manager gave an example of people paying for their treatment before sedation or the practice sending a bill. We were told that they never accepted payment from people directly after treatment that required sedation. People we spoke with confirmed that this was the system they had experienced.

People told us that they always felt safe in the surgery. They said that they that there was always a nurse in the surgery with the dentist. They told us that they felt ''fully confident and safe at all times, including during and after sedation''.

Cleanliness and infection control Met this standard

People should be cared for in a clean environment and protected from the risk of infection

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

People were protected from the risk of infection because appropriate guidance had been followed.

People were cared for in a clean, hygienic environment.

Reasons for our judgement

There were effective systems in place to reduce the risk and spread of infection. A senior dental nurse had been appointed as the infection control lead. Dental nurses talked us through the sterilisation processes. The practice had two decontamination rooms. Decontamination and sterilisation equipment included disinfectant/washer machines and vacuum autoclaves (sterilising machines). Nurses placed instruments into sterile bags which clearly displayed sterilisation dates.

Dental nurses were responsible for the processing of all equipment and instruments and the cleanliness of all surfaces. Records of the infection control equipment services, all hygiene and infection control checks and cleaning schedules were kept. We saw that entries were ticked and were accurate and current. The provider may find it useful to note that check lists were not initialled. This meant that it could be difficult to identify who had completed the checks, should it be necessary.

The manager showed us the three dental surgeries. Dental nurses talked us through the system for ensuring only sterilised tools were used and the risk of cross infection was minimised. They told us that the dentist and nurse worked as a team to ensure the correct procedures were followed. We saw that all surfaces were 'uncluttered', clean and hygienic.The computer key pads had hygiene covers that could be easily wiped down and all sterilesurfaces were covered in green cloths. The nurse told us that this method was very helpfulto remind staff not to touch sterile areas without appropriate protective clothing. People told us that hygiene and cleanliness standards were ''excellent.'' One person talked us through the hygiene processes they had witnessed.

Records showed that all staff were trained in infection control and updated their training every year. The dental nurses we spoke with were able to describe the methods they usedto minimise the risk of cross infection. Hand sanitisation equipment was available throughout the practice. Audits of infection control processes were completed regularly. Examples included daily instrument checks, monthly sterilisation equipment checks and weekly cleaning checks.

| Inspection Report | Pentangle Dental Transformations | April 2013 www.cqc.org.uk 12

The general cleaning of the practice was completed by a cleaner who followed a written schedule and ticked to confirm they had completed the schedule.

Staff were provided with uniforms, footwear and other protective clothing, as necessary. They did not wear their uniforms away from the practice and changed into their uniforms when they arrived at work. Their uniforms were laundered for them by a specialist laundry.

| Inspection Report | Pentangle Dental Transformations | April 2013 www.cqc.org.uk 13

Supporting workers Met this standard

Staff should be properly trained and supervised, and have the chance to develop and improve their skills

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

People were cared for by staff who were supported to deliver care and treatment safely and to an appropriate standard.

Reasons for our judgement

Staff received appropriate professional development. The practice had four nurses, four dentists, a dental hygienist and a manager. The four nurses were fully qualified. Two of the dentists provided training for other dentists in the field of 'implants'. We saw four staff files that showed training records were completed. All staff participated in training courses to up date their knowledge such as infection control and emergency first aid. The practice held some lunch time workshops and had quarterly team meetings.

Staff told us that they had annual personal development meetings and could request additional training at any time. Dentists and nurses kept copies of their Continuation of Professional Development certificates in the practice. The practice provided the training to enable nurses to meet their General Dental Council registration requirements. We saw records of annual appraisals. These consisted of the partners and practice manager holding a preliminary meeting about a staff member's performance followed by a one to one meeting with the practice manager. Staff were rated according to their performance over the previous year. Recorded action plans included additional training, a change in nurses' rotas and observation sessions.

Inductions were recorded and included all staff being ''buddied'' until they were judged as competent. An example was the new dental specialist who was observed five times by a partner of the practice before they worked on their own.

Staff members told us that they felt well supported to do their jobs. They told us that the manager listened to them and responded to new ideas and to their views, especially if it would improve the care of the patients. They told us that felt ''involved and valued.''

Assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision

Met this standard

The service should have quality checking systems to manage risks and assure the health, welfare and safety of people who receive care

Our judgement

The provider was meeting this standard.

The provider had an effective system to regularly assess and monitor the quality of servicethat people receive.

The provider had an effective system in place to identify, assess and manage risks to the health, safety and welfare of people who use the service and others.

Reasons for our judgement

The provider took account of complaints and comments to improve the service. The service had a comprehensive complaints policy and procedure. This included the contact details of the Dental Complaints Service, the General Dental Council and the Care Quality Commission. People we spoke with told us that they had ''no concerns or complaints'' but would not ''hesitate to complain if necessary''. They said that they were ''confident that the dentists would take immediate action.'' The practice kept a complaints folder which contained details of all complaints received. The complaints folder showed that there had been one complaint in the past year. This was recorded in detail with the action to be taken and the resolution of the complaint, including whether the complainant was satisfied with the outcome.

People who used the service were asked for their views about the care and treatment provided. Patient surveys were carried out regularly. A sample of 100 patients per dentist was surveyed at different times throughout the year. Results were collated by the practice manager and an action plan developed from comments made. Developments undertaken as a result of patients' views included making available an up-dated fees list and the provision of a back up heating system to deal with any boiler problems.

The practice was part of the British Dental Association's good practice scheme and had successfully renewed their membership in December 2012.

There were a number of formal quality assurance processes within the practice. These included a six monthly medical history audit, a six monthly consent audit and a radiography (x-ray) audit. All audits were completed as appropriate to the area they covered. For example infection control audits were carried out weekly or monthly.

The practice had health and safety policies and procedures to cover areas such as fire, electrical safety and the safe use of substances hazardous to health.Health and safety risk assessments were developed and staff were trained in emergency

procedures such as fire evacuation. The practice had an emergency box and emergency medicines available. All staff received resuscitation procedure training that was up-dated annually. All accidents and incidents were recorded in detail and the practice manager reviewed them weekly.

People told us that they were very happy with the quality of treatment they received. One person described it as ''exemplary''.

About CQC inspections

We are the regulator of health and social care in England.

All providers of regulated health and social care services have a legal responsibility to make sure they are meeting essential standards of quality and safety. These are the standards everyone should be able to expect when they receive care.

The essential standards are described in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2010 and the Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009. We regulate against these standards, which we sometimes describe as "governmentstandards".

We carry out unannounced inspections of all care homes, acute hospitals and domiciliary care services in England at least once a year to judge whether or not the essential standards are being met. We carry out inspections of dentists and other services at least once every two years. All of our inspections are unannounced unless there is a good reason to let the provider know we are coming.

There are 16 essential standards that relate most directly to the quality and safety of care and these are grouped into five key areas. When we inspect we could check all or part of any of the 16 standards at any time depending on the individual circumstances of the service. Because of this we often check different standards at different times but we always inspect at least one standard from each of the five key areas every year. We may check fewer key areas in the case of dentists and some other services.

When we inspect, we always visit and we do things like observe how people are cared for, and we talk to people who use the service, to their carers and to staff. We also review information we have gathered about the provider, check the service's records and check whether the right systems and processes are in place.

We focus on whether or not the provider is meeting the standards and we are guided by whether people are experiencing the outcomes they should be able to expect when the standards are being met. By outcomes we mean the impact care has on the health, safety and welfare of people who use the service, and the experience they have whilst receiving it.

Our inspectors judge if any action is required by the provider of the service to improve the standard of care being provided. Where providers are non-compliant with the regulations, we take enforcement action against them. If we require a service to take action, or if we take enforcement action, we re-inspect it before its next routine inspection was due. This could mean we re-inspect a service several times in one year. We also might decide to re-inspect a service if new concerns emerge about it before the next routine inspection.

In between inspections we continually monitor information we have about providers. The information comes from the public, the provider, other organisations, and from care workers.

You can tell us about your experience of this provider on our website.

| Inspection Report | Pentangle Dental Transformations | April 2013 www.cqc.org.uk 17

How we define our judgements

The following pages show our findings and regulatory judgement for each essential standard or part of the standard that we inspected. Our judgements are based on the ongoing review and analysis of the information gathered by CQC about this provider and the evidence collected during this inspection.

We reach one of the following judgements for each essential standard inspected.

Met this standard This means that the standard was being met in that the provider was compliant with the regulation. If we find that standards were met, we take no regulatory action but we may make comments that may be useful to the provider and to the public about minor improvements that could be made.

Action needed This means that the standard was not being met in that the provider was non-compliant with the regulation. We may have set a compliance action requiring the provider to produce a report setting out how and by when changes will be made to make sure they comply with the standard. We monitor the implementation of action plans in these reports and, if necessary, take further action.We may have identified a breach of a regulation which is more serious, and we will make sure action is taken. We will report on this when it is complete.

Enforcement action taken

If the breach of the regulation was more serious, or there have been several or continual breaches, we have a range ofactions we take using the criminal and/or civil procedures in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and relevant regulations. These enforcement powers include issuing a warning notice; restricting or suspending the services a provider can offer, or the number of people it can care for; issuing fines and formal cautions; in extreme cases, cancelling a provider or managers registration or prosecutinga manager or provider. These enforcement powers are set out in law and mean that we can take swift, targeted action where services are failing people.

| Inspection Report | Pentangle Dental Transformations | April 2013 www.cqc.org.uk 18

How we define our judgements (continued)

Where we find non-compliance with a regulation (or part of a regulation), we state which part of the regulation has been breached. We make a judgement about the level of impact on people who use the service (and others, if appropriate to the regulation) from the breach. This could be a minor, moderate or major impact.

Minor impact – people who use the service experienced poor care that had an impact ontheir health, safety or welfare or there was a risk of this happening. The impact was not significant and the matter could be managed or resolved quickly.

Moderate impact – people who use the service experienced poor care that had a significant effect on their health, safety or welfare or there was a risk of this happening. The matter may need to be resolved quickly.

Major impact – people who use the service experienced poor care that had a serious current or long term impact on their health, safety and welfare, or there was a risk of this happening. The matter needs to be resolved quickly

We decide the most appropriate action to take to ensure that the necessary changes are made. We always follow up to check whether action has been taken to meet the standards.
