Our support services can be purchased alone or added to our membership packages, Apolline Total Compliance. Support services include compliance audits, in-practice compliance support, clinical due diligence, emergency CQC support, and new practice start up support.
Apolline Compliance Audit
The priority for most practices when it comes to compliance is to understand where they are starting from. We recommend a full compliance audit to assess your current level of practice compliance.
It will help you to understand where you are compliant and which areas need to be addressed. Our audits are mapped to the CQC’s Fundamental Standards and their key lines of enquiry (KLOEs), and the General Dental Council’s (GDC) requirements in Standards for the Dental Team.
A compliance audit is included as part of the Apolline Total Compliance service
All Apolline compliance audits are completed by an experienced Practice Advisor. Following the audit, you will receive a detailed action plan that shows - at a glance - how compliant your practice is against each fundamental standard. If you need help implementing your action plan, we can help with that too!
Compliance Support Services
Do you need assistance with your overall compliance? We can work with you and your team - applying our expertise, knowledge and experience - to help and support you with all matters relating to regulatory compliance. This may be helping to implementing your compliance audit action plan, implementing your practice policies or team training. We will work with you to develop the right solution.

Clinical Due Diligence
If you are planning to buy an existing dental practice, a clinical due diligence audit is essential to assess the dental practice’s existing compliance status prior to acquisition.It is important that you know the extent to which it meets current regulatory standards before your purchase.
No new business owner wants any surprises which may impact their livelihood, financials or the success of your investment. Know what you are buying before you sign on the dotted line with our clinical due diligence audit.
Emergency CQC Support
We hope we never have to provide this service – but it’s reassuring to know our emergency support is available should you ever need it.
Should you find yourself in a spot of bother with one or more regulators, we can work with you to turn the situation around to a positive outcome. You can be sure we will work discreetly and sensitively to assess your situation and put a remedial plan into place.
New Practice Start-Ups
Are you setting up a new practice from scratch or relocating to new premises? We can provide the expert help and guidance you need to ensure the successful opening of your new business. We offer a fully tailored compliance service to provide help where needed and to support you every step of the way. We can provide assistance with registration, site visits, policies and protocols, training for the new team and pre-registration checks.
