We are part of BUPA Dental

Bupa Preferred Supplier The Dentists Sub

Bupa is a healthcare company, looking after over 22 million people across 190 countries. We've drawn on this wealth of knowledge and expertise to provide people living in Australia and New Zealand with quality healthcare services, support and advice. We also continue to grow and develop relationships with key healthcare partners at home and abroad.

Oral health is one of the cornerstones of overall health, but it’s an area that’s often neglected. Tooth decay is the most prevalent health problem in Australia (1), affecting nearly 50% of Australian children by the age of 12, while Australian adults lose 3 million hours of paid work or study each year due to dental issues (2).

In fact, 90% of all tooth loss is due to tooth decay and gum disease (1) conditions that are largely preventable with the appropriate care.

Ongoing benefits of visiting this practice as a Bupa member include:

  • No Gap Kids Dental*

  • certainty of known out-of-pocket expenses on most dental services

  • increased benefits on most dental services

  • on-the-spot claiming facilities

 

Everything Bupa do is for the health of its customers. Bupa is part of a global family that reinvests its profits to provide better services for our customers. Bupa believe this is the only way to truly put you first.

OUR AFFILIATES

We are QIP Accredited

QIP Accredited - The Dentists Subiaco.jp

“Achieving accreditation demonstrates a commitment to the provision of excellent dental care and continuous quality improvement within the practice.”
- Quality Innovation Performance

 

What is QIP Accreditation?
 

The accreditation of private dental practices’ is based on the integration of a set of National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards into everyday practice culture and patient safety. These standards harmonise regulatory requirements passed down by both Federal and State governments, with highlights being the demonstration of clear and evidence based patient benefits when visiting an accredited practice.

What this means for you
 

When choosing an accredited practice a patient can expect a reduction in clinical and general risks, as well as the peace of mind in knowing that all staff are educated and engaged in the implementation of dental systems and improvement of dental processes within their practice.

National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards for Dentist’s were adopted by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care in 2011. The attainment of these standards means a dental practice has proven to be of the highest calibre in delivering quality patient care within Australia.

We now proudly belong to a new age of accredited dental practices, meeting QIP quality standards of patient care for all patients.

What this means for us
 

We assure you we are committed to ongoing improvement of the policies and procedures that govern our dental practice, providing assurance to patients, staff, colleagues and peers that we are committed to quality, safety and excellence across all standards.

Accreditation is independent recognition that we have met the requirements based on a defined criteria and set of standards that all practices can be judged equally against. Accreditation provides assurance to our patients, staff and everyone associated with the Practice that quality and performance standards have been met and are being constantly evaluated and improved upon.

If you would like to find out more about the accreditation of our practice please contact us for more information.
