British Dental Association Good Practice Scheme

The BDA Good Practice Scheme is a quality assurance programme for UK dental practices.

By becoming members of the Scheme, practices demonstrate a visible commitment to providing quality dental care to nationally recognised best practice standards. Practices taking part are kept up-to-date with current requirements in order to provide the best care for their patients.

  • Carefully look at the service that is provided and compare it against nationally recognised standards of good practice for patient care.
  • Be assessed annually by the British Dental Association.
  • Regularly carry out internal checks on working methods.
