Cross Infection Control
Cross infection control ensures that strict cleanliness is maintained throughout the whole practice.
Our high standard cross infection systems are robust, following national HTM 01-05 guidance and CQC compliance.
• Our decontamination equipment is used to sterilise our re-usable instruments and to kill bacteria (germs).
We use single-use items where possible, greatly reducing the risk of cross infection.
Our decontamination equipment is serviced regularly to ensure the efficiency is maintained.
• Single-use gloves and masks are worn by the clinical team when carrying out dental treatments. They are disposed of in special clinical waste containers which are collected and disposed of in line with national guidelines.
• Surgeries are cleaned between each patient using approved cleaning agents, ensuring that our high standards of cleanliness are maintained throughout the day.
Oral cancer screenings are carried out at every dental examination.
