Management of your personal health Information
Your dental records are a confidential document. It is the policy of their practice to maintain security of personal health information at all times and to ensure that this information is only available to authorised members of staff. Exchange of information with specialist is done with your knowledge and permission. Exchange of records with other dental practitioners is only done with signed privacy documentation by patient.
In accordance with policy of the Australian Dental Associates, Richmond Fine Dentistry acknowledges the relationship between the dentist and patient. The interference of third party insurance companies in this relationship is rejected. Therefore we have decided to not join so called “preferred” provide schemes.
Acceptable methods of payment include cash, Eftpos and credit cards. Direct electronic claim from health funds is available with HICAPS. On the day settlement of accounts is required unless special arrangements have been made.
We provide dental services under the schemes:
Our practice is committed to preventative care. Research clearly shows that regular dental hygiene maintenance reduces overall treatment needs. Recall intervals from patient to patient differ during different periods in a patients life.
We recommend scheduling your hygiene dental examination appointment at the conclusion of your current treatment otherwise we will send you a recall card at he appointment time.
We aim to attend to you at he scheduled appointment time, if you are unable to keep your appointment please pay us the courtesy of giving us at least 24hrs notice. These times can be allocated to another patient in need. We will endeavour to remind you of your appointment via phone or SMS.
Our Environmental Responsibility
We have an amalgam scavanger system which eliminates 99% of mercury from entering our waterways.
We recycle all our paper products. We have a lot of paper due to packaging of all our instruments, paper cups and the like but this is all recycled. All Patient records are digital and anything paper is scanned onto our secure database which is backed up daily off site.
We have a fully digital intergrated xrays in our practice and therefore have no harsh chemicals to administer.
All santiory and infectious waste is collected by the appropriate authorities.
In our clinical and wet areas, we have selected Marmoleum, a natural floor covering material made from linseed oil, limestone, wood flour, natural pigments and jute. This combination of renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials naturally inhibits bacterial growth.
For our lounge area, we have chosen wool carpets for their natural properties and leather lounges, which do not accumulate dust and we use only neutral, natural detergents and cleaning products. In addition, we have carefully selected our bench top surfaces and finishes in order to keep gasses from volatile organic compounds to a minimum.
We have live plants to help with air quaility and a ducted vacuum system to reduce the the spread of allergins and kept dust to a minimum.
Filtered hot and cold water is available for our staff and patients.
