Quality development.


:The problem with improving quality in dental practice is not so much a difficulty with understanding exactly what quality means, but more a lack of clear guidance as to how to take the simple, practical steps to achieving that improvement in the daily pressures of practice life. This article describes Quality Development, a simple and practical method that can be used in general practice to help the dental team achieve the objectives in quality care that are appropriate to them.
