*Australian Charter Of Healthcare Rights
While it is not mandatory for dental practices in Victoria to become accredited, when the Australian Dental Association launched the Introductory Dental Practice Accreditation Scheme in July 2012 - a scheme that assesses all aspects of a dental practice against very high standards – Dr Petunia Jacob and the team at Healthy Smiles @ Mt Eliza decided to apply for accreditation and we were one of the few dental practices among the first to be accredited at that time. We always aim to provide the best possible dental care so we were confident we would measure up well, but it was nevertheless reassuring for us, our patients and the community to know that Healthy Smiles @ Mt Eliza met the high standards for accreditation.
Presently full accreditation remains valid for a period of four years during which the practice is committed to continuous self-assessment and updating against the latest advances in dental practice re-assessed against the latest standards for accreditation, we have been re accredited which lasts for four years. We are now fully accredited up until 2020!
When you visit our dental practice, we want to make sure you receive quality dental care without compromise to our high standards of clinical care. It is important to us to make sure we have taken every possible precaution to keep you and your family safe and comfortable during visits.
We are proud to be a QIP Accredited practice and to offer our patients the very best care we can. QIP Accreditation is a choice we made in an attempt to become the best we can be.
