In this practice, good oral care is paramount. In order to gauge the quality of the care provided, this practice had itself visited. This was done through the Royal Dutch Dental Association (KNMT), the professional association of dentists, orthodontists and oral surgeons.
During a visitation, specially trained dentists for this purpose take a close look at the practice. They look at:
- Whether the practice organizes business properly;
- Whether the practice complies with laws and regulations;
- Whether the patient receives care according to quality standards.
After a visitation, a practice receives a report with an evaluation and recommendations. With the report in hand, a practice can continue to work on improving the quality they offer. If you visit a practice with the visitation logo of the KNMT then you can be sure that you are at a practice where quality is paramount!
The practice also receives a certificate of participation in visitation. This certificate states the date of the visitation and which dentists and have participated.
