At DCO Dental we work hard to ensure that equality and diversity is at the heart of what we do. We continually strive to ensure that the diverse needs of our community can be met and everyone has equal access to the services we provide. Some of the ways we are currently doing this is by:
Applying for the Autism Friendly Award via The National Autistic Society
Learning more about dementia by undertaking the Dementia Friends Programme with the Alzheimer's Society.
Keeping up to date with local strategies of Greater Manchester Authorities, such as Pride in Practice and GM Autism Friendly Strategy 2019-2022.
At DCO Dental Group we take complaints very seriously indeed and try to ensure that all our patients are pleased with their experience of our service. If you have a complaint please contact Bernadette Wilkinson our Practice Manager.
We take care to keep the information you provide to us with confidential and secure. We comply with the Data Protection Act 2018 and will not share this information with any other party. Please contact Bernadette Wilkinson for any further information, or if you have any questions regarding this.

There are currently over 40 members of staff at DCO Dental Group and we are very proud of the skills and experience everyone brings to the team. We are committed to supporting each other to continually grow and develop in our roles, and this is evidenced by our most recent accreditation of Investors in People in March 2019. We will now work with Investors in People to continue to motivate and engage effectively with each other and develop a culture that aligns with delivering a service that is outstanding!
