It’s smiles all around at the Broadway Dental Practice in Woodhall Spa.
The family owned business has just been awarded membership of the British Dental Association’s Good Practice Scheme.
Only practices that meet very high criteria are eligible.
The Broadway Practice is one of only eight in Lincolnshire to be awarded membership.
Practice manager Vicki Gemmell said: “We are all delighted. Everyone has played a part. It’s been a real team effort.”
The practice is owned by Vicki’s husband and principle dentist Sandy.
They have been in charge for the last five years, although the business has actually been in the family for many years.
Membership of the scheme means Broadway will aim to keep-up-to-date with nationally agreed standards of good practice in order to prove the best possible care for patients.
Broadway will be assessed periodically throughout the membership period, to ensure the practice meets requirements.
Among the commitments is that patients will be asked for the views on the service Broadway provides.
There are also pledges regarding staff training and general cleanliness.
Broadway is an NHS practice and apart from Woodhall Spa, it treats patients from many surrounding villages.
