The Courtyard Announced as Advisers to Parliament for the Private Dental Sector
Huddersfield-based dental practice The Courtyard has announced that they are now advisers to parliament for the private dental sector.
The news comes following the announcement that the practice appears alongside Prime Minister Theresa May in the Parliamentary Review - a series of documents published by Westminster Publications Ltd with the aim of sharing knowledge and raising standards.
What is the parliamentary review?
Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review is a series of independent publications which aims to share best practice among policy makers and business leaders.
Each edition focuses on a key governmental policy area, and The Courtyard features alongside the Prime Minister and a small number of outstanding organisations in a document that looks back on the year in the private healthcare sector and Westminster.
Across all policy areas, the Parliamentary Review is sent to over half a million leading policy makers, stakeholders in industry and other relevant individuals. The articles in the Review act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.
Commenting on this year’s publication, the PM’s former cabinet colleague, Sir Eric Pickles, Chairman of the Review, said “It has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.”
The Parliamentary Review’s executive director Daniel Yossman agreed, saying “The Courtyard and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make the Review possible. It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread. It is the Review’s purpose to provide this platform and I am confident we are fulfilling it.”
What does it mean for their patients?
The Courtyard was recognised by the Parliamentary Review for its innovations in dental technology, the significant amount of investment put into offering its patients the best quality dental treatment, and high levels of customer service.
By featuring in the Parliamentary Review, it further emphasises that the practice is leading the way with its treatment towards patient care, with cutting-edge treatments, setting the standard expected for the industry.
Also, with regular investment into the state-of-the-art laboratory and CBCT bone scanning facilities, complete with three technicians on site in the lab at all times, The Courtyard can ensure its patients get the best quality of service possible, while providing all the information needed to allow them to provide a truly 360-degree patient experience.
The practice has also invested over £250,000 in new dentistry technology over the past few years. Because of this, they can now proudly say that they’re the only practice in the north of England with a dentistry lab that houses this level of digital scanning, 3D printing and CAD CAM capabilities.
Marcos White, practice owner and lead cosmetic dentist at The Courtyard, talks about why the technology they have on site makes patients more confident in treatment:
“These technologies, of which we are very much early adopters, have transformed the level of predictability in our treatments. Our temporary restorations are now of such high quality that new recommendations attend for consultation after seeing just these.
“As the quality of our outcome continues to increase, so does people’s perceptions of these treatments. The potential risks are lessened, and more patients than ever are confident in making that first contact – even if they have had bad experiences at other practices in the past.
“We feel that we are close to being able to offer and deliver our personal vision of the future. No matter what your start point – crooked teeth, heavily restored teeth or no teeth at all – we can design your smile on screen, 3D print your temporary smile so you could walk away with it on your first treatment appointment, and have your final versions be delivered the very next visit.”
Founded in Huddersfield in 2001, The Courtyard is Yorkshire’s most experienced Invisalign dentist and has completed over 650 cases for the invisible-like braces treatment.
