We take the responsibility of safeguarding of your personal details and information very seriously and uphold a strict code of conduct in this area.
Your information will only be used by the treating dentist in order to deliver your care to the highest standards.
It will not be disclosed to those not associated with your treatment without your consent except as provided under the legislation and where we consider you would have a reasonable expectation of us to provide such information, for example if we refer you to a specialist practitioner, or if a laboratory is instructed to make a customised prosthesis for you.
We may also use parts of your health information for research purposes, in study groups, at seminars or on our web-site as this may provide benefits to other patients. Should that happen, your personal identity will not be disclosed without your consent, to do so.
You may seek access to the information held about you and we will provide this access without undue delay. This access might be by inspection of your dental records at the time of appointment or by special access or copying of information at other times. There will be no charge made for requesting this information but there may be fees levied to cover the costs associated with the processing of this request or the copying of information.
We will take reasonable steps to ensure at all times that the details we keep about you are accurate, complete and up-to-date.
We will take reasonable steps to protect this information from misuse or loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
