Significant Smile QIP Accreditation

Significant Smile QIP Accreditation

Significant Smile, located in Brisbane’s CBD, is proud to be associated with Quality Innovation Performance (QIP) as an accredited dental clinic. What a QIP Accreditation means to our customers is a peace of mind when they undergo treatments at our clinic.
To earn the accreditation, we have demonstrated evidence-based, consistent standards of quality care – in keeping with our adoption of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards. Indeed, our QIP Accreditation bears the hallmarks of quality improvement processes and systems, exemplified by enhanced patient safety and reduction in clinical and general risks.
The QIP Accreditation is not just a badge we wear on our sleeves. It represents an ongoing commitment on the part of our practice, including all our dentists and staff, to uphold the highest levels of professional dental care and safety standards.
Significant Smile thrives on delivering exceptional customer service and cutting edge treatments. Our QIP Accreditation underscores the fact that we do so in respect of Australia’s high safety standards and requirements.

QIP Accreditation Explained

QIP accreditation recognises private dental practices that have demonstrated an ability to integrate NSQHS standards as a routine aspect of their practice culture and patient safety. NSQHS Standards are instituted in accord with healthcare regulations passed down by both State and Federal governments. The standards are applied to healthcare services as a nationally consistent code of practice in order to raise the level of dental care in Australia.
To a patient, it is sometimes difficult to access the standards of a clinic based on personal judgement or word of mouth. The accreditation serves as a professional endorsement – as well as added assurance – to both patients and staff that the practice is committed to safety, quality and excellence.

As a QIP Accredited Practice

Significant Smile is committed to the following:
  • High standards of clinical and patient safety
  • Quality improvement in our practice culture and credo
  • Building an efficient organisation that fosters quality staff performance
  • Lower clinical and general risks
  • Compliance with relevant regulatory requirements
Significant Smile is constantly managing risk and quality in our efforts to improve performance and outcomes. If you have any questions with regards to our QIP Accreditation or other aspects of our safety policies and protocols, please contact Significant Smile at (07) 3221 0481.
