It is always quite entertaining to watch ratings – the top ten movies, top ten TV shows, and top ten YouTube videos. When it comes to rating something in the healthcare industry, it becomes a little more complicated. Having a resonating name, good quality standards, high success rate when it comes to dental treatments, and being known as a specialty dental clinic for specific procedures matter. However, there are many other things involving high standards of care and success rate for a dental hospital. These would help you decide the best dental clinic for you.
What makes a dental hospital top rated?
A dental clinic or a dental hospital can run successful practice with the help of experienced dentists, but they do need to meet certain guidelines in order to become top rated. It is important for a dental hospital to follow guidelines of governments, related organizations, and guidelines of standards in order to be a top-rated dental hospital.
Apart from these, the number of procedures the dental hospital undertakes, their success rate, and the satisfaction of patients also matter a lot. After all, if a patient is not happy with the results, nothing else matters. Here are a few things you need to look out for to choose a top rated hospital for your dental treatment.
Accreditation from NABH
The National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers is a prestigious organization and a constituent board of the Quality Council of India. It is an organization that sets benchmarks in quality standards for better healthcare. The NABH standards for Dental Health Care Service Providers are a complete set of standards that is used to evaluate a dental facility for standards.
NABH provides two types of standards – one for dental clinics that do not have inpatient facility and one for dental hospitals that have inpatient facility.
What does it mean to have NABH accreditation?
A dental hospital can become top rated with the help of an NABH accreditation because NABH standards ensure:
- Continuity of care, access, and assessment
- Care of patients
- Patient rights and information
- Infection control
- Proper management of dental equipment
- Continuous quality improvement
- Facility management
- Information management
ISO certification for dental clinics
Having an ISO certification for a dental clinic means that dental treatment is given on a first come first serve basis, it follows all the statutory and regulatory guidelines of dental treatments as per the Indian Dental Association and the clinic has a proper documentation process involving:
- Oral health facts
- Dental treatment FAQs
- Treatment guides
- Smart foods choices for dental health
- Pain management
- Management of dental emergencies
- The departments of dentistry available
- Dental equipment maintenance and upkeep of facilities
Apart from these, accreditation from Indian Dental Association, and accreditation from international organizations like ISQua (International society for quality in healthcare), JCI (Joint Commission International), and others like GCR add value to a dental clinic and give assurance to international patients to opt for dental tourism in India.
Standards of care
All accreditations and certifications ultimately boil down to high quality patient care. Providing patients with good dental care, not over/under treating patients, educating patients regarding their dental condition, offering treatment options, providing them cost-effective care with long-lasting results and finally, having a friendly atmosphere is very important for patient satisfaction.

Cone Beam CT
Cone Beam CT is a digital dental diagnostic tool that is used to visualize bony architecture of the jaws, bone thickness and location of vital structures. Cone Beam CT is also used for examining dental implant sites with minimized anatomic superimposition.
This is digital x-ray equipment with much greater exposure latitude. Digital orthopantogram provides instant viewable images that can be sent to the patient.
This diagnostic tool is used to get special image analysis with software and enables quicker images because of the use of intra-oral sensors.
