What Makes Lakeside Dental Surgery Center Special?
It’s possible that your current dentist can provide your care! With an open credentialing process for eligible dental providers, Lakeside Dental Surgery Center encourages all pediatric dentists and oral surgeons in our community to become credentialed dentists. If your dentist is not a credentialed provider of Lakeside Dental Surgery Center, don’t worry. We have several experienced dentists who can meet your family, provide treatment, and then refer the patient back to your established dentist!
Four operating rooms are dedicated completely to the treatment of patients who are unable to receive care in a traditional dental office setting. Led by an experienced anesthesia and medical care team, Lakeside Dental Surgery Center will provide unlimited access for patients who previously would have ended up on a never-ending waiting list for treatment while under anesthesia.
Lakeside Dental Surgery Center welcomes all patients, including those with developmental healthcare needs. Only patients with severe underlying healthcare issues will not be eligible for treatment at the surgery center, but we will work with you to have the patient coordinated for treatment at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.
You can put your family’s medical insurance benefits to use! Ambulatory surgical centers (ASC) are medical facilities, and Lakeside Dental Surgery Center is in network with most medical insurance carriers, including Medicaid. That means that your medical insurance will provide benefits towards the anesthesia and facility fees associated with the patient’s treatment.
*The patient’s dental provider will coordinate the dental insurance benefits for the dental treatment.
At Lakeside Dental Surgery Center, we are committed to providing exceptional care and maintaining the highest standards of patient safety. We understand the importance of accreditation and are currently in the process of pursuing accreditation with the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
AAAHC is a renowned organization dedicated to advancing the quality of healthcare provided in ambulatory surgery centers like ours. Their rigorous accreditation process evaluates various aspects of patient care, safety protocols, and administrative practices to ensure that accredited facilities meet or exceed industry standards.
We have taken proactive steps to align our practices with AAAHC standards, demonstrating our commitment to delivering the highest quality care possible. While we work diligently towards achieving accreditation, we would like to highlight some of the key steps involved in this process:
- Self-Assessment: We have conducted a comprehensive self-assessment of our facility, policies, and procedures to identify areas for improvement and ensure compliance with AAAHC standards.
- Gap Analysis: Our team of healthcare professionals and administrators have performed a thorough analysis to identify any gaps between our current practices and AAAHC requirements. This helps us prioritize and address any necessary changes.
- Implementation of Best Practices: We have implemented evidence-based best practices recommended by AAAHC to enhance patient safety, improve infection control measures, and streamline operational efficiency.
- Ongoing Staff Training: Our dedicated staff members are continuously trained and educated on the latest advancements in ambulatory care, ensuring they stay up to date with the evolving standards of AAAHC.
- Continuous Quality Improvement: We have established a robust quality improvement program to monitor and evaluate our performance, identify areas for enhancement, and take proactive measures to provide the best possible care to our patients.
While we work diligently towards achieving AAAHC accreditation, we want to assure you that we have implemented rigorous protocols and procedures to maintain the highest standards of patient safety and care. Our commitment to excellence drives us to continuously improve and provide you with an exceptional experience.
We look forward to sharing our AAAHC accreditation status with you in the near future, and we appreciate your trust and support as we take these necessary steps to meet and exceed the stringent standards set forth by AAAHC.
