QIP Accredited Dental Practice

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is an internationally recognised evaluation process used to assess an organisation’s ability to meet and exceed all criteria for their profession.

Accreditation is awarded by an independent accrediting agency (QIP – Quality Innovation Performance) once a practice has submitted evidence demonstrating compliance with the National Safety and Quality in Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.

The NSQHS Standards encompass regulatory requirements passed by both Federal and State governments.

What this means for our patients

This means we have undergone strict assessment to verify we comply with the highest nationally recognised medical standards, and that we have integrated these standards into everyday procedures.

You can be assured that when you visit us you will receive the benchmark in quality, safety, service, and performance standards.

Experience and expertise

At SDAI our practitioners have been caring for patients for over 40 years and placing implants for the past 12 years along with teaching and mentoring other dentists worldwide.

Leaders in dental implants and pioneers in metal free implants

One of the few dental practitioners in Australia offering zirconia metal free implants, Dr Licenblat is a renowned leader in dental implantology and is the first to place zirconia implants in Australia and NZ. Having undertaken a master’s degree at Goethe University Frankfurt in Germany he performs implant surgery on a daily basis and teaches the technique to dentists all around the world.

Comfort and reassurance

If you are anxious or worried about visiting the dentist, then sleep dentistry may be your ideal solution. This enables you to undergo dental treatment in a sleep like state with no pain or stress. SDAI offers the additional benefit of inhouse sedation performed by a qualified seditionist so that you can have all treatment done in the chair.
