We aim to improve the standards of care in dental practices worldwide to ensure your safety, well-being, comfort and understanding
As part of the Foundation for Excellence in Dentistry, Slow Dentistry Global Network® provides international accreditation for advanced quality patient care.
Slow Dentistry is about the time your dentist takes to prepare your appointment, making sure you receive advanced patient safety and quality care.
Visiting a Slow Dentistry Global Network® accredited dental practice, means your dental care provider is strongly committed to safety and quality in the services they provide. Accreditation is a voluntary process and demonstrates their dedication to the highest standards of safety and quality.

In order to provide high quality and safe patient care, a Slow Dentistry Global Network® certified practice must comply with the following Cornerstones:
Proper disinfection protocols applied to the room’s surfaces, dental chair and instruments
Obtain from patients an informed consent of the treatment plan and costs prior to starting treatment
When required, anaesthetic will be applied and the appropriate time will be invested in assuring full numbness
Use of Rubber Dam
A rubber dam will be used to prevent cross-contamination for root canal and filling treatments
These are your universal rights as a dental patient. These cornerstones are taught in all dental schools worldwide, including developing nations and no dentist can refute or argue them. However, they take valuable time to execute so many dentists prefer to use that time to see more patients instead.
Make sure your dentist is an accredited Slow Dentistry Global Network® practitioner
to ensure your safety at your next consultation.
