As their main goals dentists state the following:
1. Securing smooth practice procedures
Only with complete treatment preparation the treatment can be carried out as planned. Transparency in practice procedures leads to clarity and prevention of mistakes.
2. Satisfied or even enthused patients
A comfortable practice with a good team climate guarantees winning new clients through recommendations.
3. Increase in economic revenue of your practice
Client consultation towards high quality maintenance leads to higher private liquidation.
4. Harmony in your team and fun at work
Regulation of responsibilities, team meetings and further education diminish misunderstandings and heighten motivation of all parties involved.
In introducing QM according to ISO 9001:2008 you put down the foundation for reaching your individual goals.
A QM-System on the basis of ISO 9001 - the most acknowledged QM-System - is rooted in implementation of success factors that have been proven for all kinds of enterprises world-wide. The focus hereby is customer satisfaction and processes, meaning all conceivable processes, and their interactions.
The world-wide acknowledged norm is written in the style of a legal document and first has to be interpreted according to the needs of the enterprise. Hereby reasonableness for the respective enterprise is in the foreground. It is obvious that different aspects of interpretation and implementation come into consideration for an industrial enterprise as opposed to a dental practice.
A QM-System according to ISO 9001 includes a quality management mannual (QMM), which serves as reference book for management and employees. In this Quality Manual the layout of the entire QM-System is described and it serves as basis for a possible voluntary certification.
Pre-condition for certification is the introduction of quality management according to ISO 9001 and conformity of requirements included therein. Only then can this QM-System be certified by an accredited certifying company through an external auditor.
Quality management according to the international norm ISO 9001:2008 means acting according to the principles of the control cycle “plan-do-check-act” (PDCA-Cycle).
plan: practice management is responsible for developing practice goals and supplying all necessary resources
do: implementing planned measures to reach practice goals
check: controll to what extent practice goals have been achieved
act: implementing improvement and correction measures that resulted from the “check” step
