• Operating in accordance with the highest standards of dental care; and
• Operating in accordance with health, safety and environmental best practice; and
• Using appropriately trained and qualified staff and service providers.
We will consult and involve our employees and other interested parties with the aim of avoiding ill health, accidents and damage to the environment.
• Comply with all relevant legislation;
• Identify those with responsibility for managing or for carrying out procedures and make them responsible for the safety and environmental consequences of those activities;
