Quality System Audits for the Dental Laboratory

What is Auditing? Auditing is the on-site verification activity, such as inspection or examination, of a process or quality system, to ensure compliance to requirements.

An audit can apply to an entire organization or might be specific to a function, process, or production step. Reasons for auditing include evaluation of your competitive edge, pre-audit assessment, and continuous improvement.

Results of audits are used to identify problems, reduce costs, assess personnel competency, review equipment maintenance programs, provide visible management support, ensure adherence to process standards, determine system effectiveness, and identify system inefficiencies.

FDA requires that establishments periodically perform an Internal Audit. DAMAS requires that establishments perform an audit at a minimum annually. SafeLink Consultants can perform these audits.

The audit will verify that the Quality System has been correctly communicated and is practiced. The audit will be followed up with a written Audit Report that will indicate any non-conformances. This report provides you a checklist to ensure that the standards established by your Quality System are being practiced.
