A dental clinic has been deemed as “not meeting standards” in a recent report from regulators.

Diamond Dental and Medical Clinic in Regents Park Road, Finchley, was inspected by the Care Quality Commission, which found the service was not “well-led”.

The CQC’s report made mention of four staff members who did not have references and another member of staff with no record of a DBS check in place for the practice.

Inspectors were also critical of one dental care record, which had been written in Polish and transcribed into English, and was “brief and it was not clear why some of the treatment had been undertaken.”

The report also said there was no record of the four staff members without references having identity checks or eligibility to work in the UK recording in the practice.

The report said: “We found that this practice was not providing well-led care in accordance with the relevant regulations.

“We noted that the practice had updated policies and procedures such as the Duty of Candour, referrals for specialist services and staff meetings, however, the practice did not comply with its policies and procedures.”

The dental practice did pass other elements of the inspection, and was found to be safe, effective, caring and responsive.

According to the CQC website, the dental practice’s specialisms include diagnostic and screening procedures, although the report revealed there had been no X-ray audit at the practice, nor was there any “protocol that detailed the risk assessment taken to determine when and what type of X-rays should be taken.”

Diamond Dental and Medical Clinic declined to comment.
