Data protection

Surbiton Dental complies with the 1998 Data Protection Act and the Freedom of Information Act 2000, and this Policy describes our procedures for ensuring that personal information about patients is processed fairly and lawfully.

In order to provide you with a high standard of dental care and attention, we need to hold personal information about you. This personal data comprises:

  • Personal details such as your name, age, address, telephone numbers, email address and your general medical practitioner;
  • Your past and current medical and dental condition;
  • Radiographs, clinical photographs and study models;
  • Information about the treatment we have provided or propose to provide (and its cost);
  • Notes of conversations or incidents that might occur for which a record needs to be kept;
  • Records of consent to treatment;
  • Any correspondence (relating to you) with other healthcare professionals: such as referrals to specialists, for example.

We need to keep comprehensive and accurate personal data about our patients in order to provide them with safe and appropriate dental care.

We will process personal data that we hold about you in the following way:

We will retain your dental records while you are a practice patient. If you cease to be a patient, we will continue to hold them for at least another eleven years, or in the case of children until they reach the age of 25, whichever is the longer.

Personal data about you is held in the practice’s computer system and/or in a manual filing system. The information is not accessible to the public and only authorised members of staff have access to it. Our computer system has secure audit trails and we back up information on every working day.

In order to provide proper and safe dental care, we may need to disclose personal information about you to:

  • Your general medical practitioner;
  • The hospital or community dental services;
  • Other health professionals caring for you;
  • Dental Insurance Companies of which you are a member.
  • Private dental schemes of which you are a member.

Disclosure will take place on a “need-to-know” basis. Information will only be given to those individuals/organisations who need to have it in order to provide care to you and for the proper administration of Government (whose personnel are also covered by strict confidentiality rules). The recipient will only be given the information that they need to know for these purposes.

In very limited circumstances or when required by law or by a court order, personal data may have to be disclosed to a third party not connected with your dental care. In all other situations, disclosure that is not covered by this Policy will occur only when we have your specific consent. Where possible you will be informed of these requests for disclosure.

You have the right to access the data that we hold about you and to receive a copy. Access may be obtained by making a request in writing. We will levy a fee of £10 for records that are copied. If a request is made to copy x-rays, an extra charge of £40 will be made. We will provide a copy of the record within 40 days of receipt of the request and fee and an explanation of your record should you require it.

If you move to another dental practice we may (at our discretion) loan original x-rays and provide copy notes direct to that practice free of charge on receipt of a written request from them to do so.

If you do not wish personal data we hold about you to be disclosed or used in the way that is described in this Policy, please discuss the matter with your dentist. You have the right to object, but please remember that this may affect our ability to provide you with dental care.

🌟Get that confidence back!🌟 This lovely patient came earlier in the
year wanting restore her confidence in her smile. We could not even get a pretreatment smile picture because she had forgotten how to smile!
Now she can’t stop smiling!
Treatment involved;
1. Oral hygiene instruction on how to maintain the dentition.
2. Removal of hopeless prognosis teeth and temporary replacement dentures.
3. Thorough stabilisation period treating gum disease with the hygienist.
4. Wait 3 months to insure patient can look after remaining dentition (this is crucial - we do not want to spend a lot of time/effort/money restoring a smile if it cannot be looked after.
5. Restoration using a combination of bridges and composite bonding.
There are many different ways to treat this case. The patient was given 3 options and this was the most appropriate option for her cost and time wise. (Post op photos at 3months review)
✅ Gums Healthy
✅ Long term result
✅ Patient smiling again

White Spots! ⚪️⚪️⚪️
Unsightly white spots can be caused by trauma, fluorosis or decalcification of enamel after braces. At Surbiton Dental we can treat this very easily using Icon Treatment.
This patient has not liked these white spots caused by trauma on her front teeth many years ago.
We were able to treat it with Icon and these are the results after 1
Appointment! 👀⭐️

Mouth Cancer Awareness Month
November is Mouth Cancer Awareness month. At Surbiton Dental we believe we should always be vigilant when it comes to mouth cancer.
At all new patient consultations and dental health checks we do a comprehensive oral cancer screening. It keeps you safe and also gives you a chance to poke your tongue out at us! 👅
Here’s the facts:
* Mouth Cancer is the 6th most common cancer in the world
* 8300 people are diagnosed with mouth cancer in the UK every year!
* Risk Factors: Smoking, Alcohol and over the age of 55
If you have any red patches, white patches, lumps or any other anomaly in your mouth get it checked out by a dentist immediately! Early detection can save lives!
Routine dental health checks are also advised to minimise risk of anything going unnoticed 👍🏼
