The Rock Dental Practice in Yelverton has won the Aura Infection Prevention and Control Practice of the Year Competition 2019. There were a total of approximately 160 practices that entered nationally of which 8 were shortlisted. Full details of the practice’s processes and equipment were assessed.

The practice was awarded the prize in recognition of leadership from its clinicians in developing the decontamination facilities to the highest required standards which included (possibly uniquely) a ‘track and trace’ computerised system that records instrumentation used in patient care.

The dental team of clinicians and nurses travelled up to the ‘Dental Showcase’ exhibition at the Birmingham NEC to receive the award. Mr Anthony Vaughan, specialist in Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics, said when receiving the award that ‘it recognises all the hard work by every member of the dental team to provide the safest of environments for the provision of care to our patients’.
