Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team.

Our entire team follow procedures recommended by the Department of Health and the British Dental Association.

These measures include:

  • Disinfectant hand soap
  • Gloves and face masks
  • Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
  • Sterilisation of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable instruments and materials where appropriate

We have a dedicated sterilisation room with the very latest equipment, including autoclaves, which is a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure. We have also installed washer disinfectors which use especially pure water to ensure the instruments are very clean before they are autoclaved.

The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
