Patient safety charter
Our practice has a safety culture which means that patient safety is at the forefront of everyone’s minds not only when delivering healthcare but also when setting objectives, developing procedures, purchasing new products and equipment. It is also a culture that is open and fair, where team members can discuss the challenges they face at work for the best interests of our patients. For patient safety we:
Follow the latest infection prevention guidelines including those from NHS England
Use dental instruments that are single use or are sterilised after use
Decontaminate work areas including the dental chair, hand held equipment and cupboard handles, in between patients
Maintain a high standard of personal hygiene including clinical clothing and the restricted wearing of jewellery
Monitor practice water for quality. Dental unit waterlines are disinfected and kept clear
Handle waste according to current regulations and dispose of it with appropriate carriers
Take expert advice if a team member may have a blood borne infection. The team member will have an occupational health examination and follow the advice on their role in treating patients
All our team members are trained in safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults and follow the practice safeguarding procedures, which are regularly monitored and reviewed.
We run a clinical governance system which uses integrated risk management to identify, assess, analyse and manager all risks and incidents. The goal is continuous improvement in our care and service to you.
The Practice Manager has the overall responsibility at the practice. The team is supported through regular meetings, staff training, personal development and regular appraisals. The practice always welcomes questions, comments and suggestions from patients.
Please contact the practice manager if you have any questions or concerns.

What our patients say
"I have been using this Dental practice for a few years now and the staff have always been very professional…"
Excellent service, we were seen within 5 minutes of arrival, so glad we came back to you as following a recent move we decided to try a nearer vets who were part of a chain but they sadly offered a very poor & expensive service!Thanks again.
I've been using Appleton Park Dental for nearly 30 years and it's always been great. I was apprehensive when the changes happened a couple of years back but I'm so pleased that I stayed with them as all the staff are wonderful.
My recent experience has bee ongoing check-ups and dental hygiene + some minor treatments from that and also an implant and crown to replace a tooth lost some years ago.Everyone at Appleton Park Dental has been pleasant and cheerful, the check-ups/cleaning & treatments have been thorough. The options to fix the missing tooth were well explained and executed and I'm delighted with the outcome so far. The only reason for the lost star in my rating is the wait times are long. Firstly to get the replacement process underway and secondly most appointments seem to commence at least 30 minutes after the appointment time.Ultimately its probably been worth the waits, but there is room for improvement in that area.
What a great practice- My Daughter has had terrible trouble with her front teeth resulting in root canal treatment.Dr THANAA ABDULLAH was absolutely fantastic, thank you so much.Today I visited the dentist myself for a filling, I am a very nervous patient and Hugh Garvey and Laura made me feel at ease. I would highly recommend this practice.
I wont lie, I hate the Dentist, however the 2 ladies that looked after me yesterday couldnt have been more lovely and patient. it was not an easy job either, which took a good 45 minutes, but they were so lovely and I would highly recommend :)
It was my first time at Appleton Park Dental today. I have left feeling so happy. Everyone is so friendly & helpful. Straight away I was made to feel at ease. What a wonderful team. Thank you so much.Would highly recommend.
From the minute you ring the bell you are made to feel welcome and at ease. Reception staff are lovely. Dr Mirsar is great very kind, gentle and patient. The practice is always very clean and tidy. I am a very happy patient there. Thankyou
I took my toddler son for his very first check up yesterday. Hugh the dentist and dental nurse were amazing with my son making him feel at ease. Thank you. I also had my first visit at this practice today again with Hugh. Again i felt at ease and Hugh answered all my questions i had.
