Denplan Excel

In January, we were once again inspected by Denplan to make sure we met the standards to continue to be a member of the Denplan Excel scheme.

We are one of the few dental practices in Exeter to achieve Denplan Excel Accreditation. 

What does this mean for you?

This means that as a practice, the team at Spicer Road Dental Practice have achieved the high standards required to join the Denplan Excel Accreditation Programme, developed by Denplan. The programme helps dentists to develop better relationships with you, our patients, through good communication and improving your experience of coming to the dentist.

Denplan Excel is the first accreditation scheme to be approved by the Patient’s Association and was developed as a result of studies showing that patients who enjoy a good relationship and effective communication with their dentists are less anxious about examinations and treatment.

As a member of this groundbreaking scheme we are regularly monitored to see that we maintain these high standards. We first achieved Excel accreditation four years ago and  have been re-accredited three times since, most recently in January 2013.

We are delighted to achieve these high standards of patient care and see our Denplan Excel Accreditation as a badge to be worn with pride.

An Interesting Speech

In 2005, Steve jobs was invited to give the commencement address at Stanford University. Fot those of us who aren't American, this is a speech given to students  on their graduation when they are awarded their degrees or diplomas.

It's interesting, passionate and gives an idea into what drove Steve Jobs. It talks about several pivotal points in his life and how he used them to motivate himself.

I'd heard about it for several years but took the time to listen to it yesterday. It's worth a look.
